Dunes moths

Good numbers of moths at Ynys-las last night with about 40 species. Large numbers of Smoky Wainscot and Scarce Footman, 15 Garden Tiger (which take up a lot of space in a small trap). Also plentiful were Clay, Rosy Minor, Dark Arches, White-line Dart, Shuttle-shaped Dart, Least and Lesser Yellow Underwing. We had 7 Shore Wainscot, only the 20th county record and all from Ynys-las. Also Archer's Dart, Southern Wainscot, and Common Wainscot.
