I set two traps last night, one at home and the other away, in mixed woodland in the Rheidol Valley. 80+ species in total. I was pleased to see several Satin Beauty in the woodland, as well as Purple Bar, Cloaked Carpet, Buff Footman, Scalloped Oak, Antler, Purple Clay, Slender Brindle, Pinion-streaked Snout, Pseudatemelia (Agnoea) josephinae, Spilonota laricana and Eudonia delunella. At home, the highlights were Haworth's and Freyer's Pugs, several Pammene fasciana, and a pristine Small Rivulet. Also my first Common Rustic this year, and a Phyllonorycter blancardella hatched from our apple tree.
