Moth Event RSPB Ynys-hir

We joined Tony and Ina this morning for their first moth event at Ynys-hir this year and were delighted to see so many people there on such a cold morning.  Including the local supporters we had one from Pembrokeshire, two from the Midlands and one from Dorset.

Two MV and two actinic traps produced a total of 17 macro and 2 micro species.  Most numerous were Hebrew Character (49) and Common Quaker (21).  Others included Square Spot, Brindled Beauty, Purple Thorn, Early Thorn, Great Prominent, Powdered Quaker, Streamer and Water Carpet but only one species of pug (Brindled).  The micros were Dyseriocrania subpurpurella and Agonopterix heracliana/ciliella.
