Llangeitho moths

Trap in a more gardened area last night, among shrubs and Miscanthus, yielding 40 moths of 17 species. Notable for me were four Scorched Wing, two Flame Shoulder, two Brown Silver-line, a Pale-shouldered Brocade and a Scalloped Hazel.

The last was extremely restive, even after an hour in the fridge; it escaped but was re-found and photographed on a window frame, as was the Scorched Wing.
