National Moth Recorders Meeting 2021

The 2021 National Moth Records meeting took place virtually this year.  Well it was certainly easier than an early morning train to Birmingham and the thought of a 3 hour trip back again.

The disadvantage was not meeting up with old friends, new (virtual) friends and putting faces to names.

The meeting was recorded and is now on You Tube.  If you wish to view what went on then please follow the link HERE

All the best to everyone and lets hope normal life will be restored as soon as possible.

Llanarth garden

 It has been a very quiet January but perhaps things are starting to look up.

January Moths

 At last some moths on a slightly warmer night.  Our catch went up 300% with one Dotted Border and two colour forms of the Spring Usher.

Unseasonal visitor

 This Mottled Grey was at my kitchen window last night. Is this the earliest date for Ceredigion?

Scarce Umber at Llawrcwrt


 Nice to get something at least nominally Scarce, even if it turns out to be quite common. Its sole companion in the trap was a rather tatty Feathered thorn.

Macros included my first December Moth of this autumn.

Talybont Garden

The warmest night for a week or so and some cloud cover instead of the bright moon we have had lately.  Don't get me wrong I love to look at a clear night sky, unfortunately the moths are not too keen to come out to play!

 Just three moths last night with a hope of more to come as the weather warms over the next few days.    Emmelina monodactyla, November Moth agg and Black Rustic.     Ina and Tony
