Talybont Garden

Things were much quieter in the garden trap last night.
Buff Ermine seems to have taken over as most numerous, only singles of others - White Ermine, Heart & Dart, Large Y/u, Dusky Brocade, Elephant H-m among them.
However there were some new micros for the year here, pictured below.
I found a pupa in a plant we have that gets chewed to within an inch of it's life every year and have been threatening to remove it as it also flops everywhere and covers other things.  Anyway it must be some sort of cultivated Fleabane as Anania crocealis emerged from the pupa this morning....think we will keep the plant!
