Ynys-hir moths

4 Heath traps in some relatively un-trapped parts of the reserve last night produced nearly 50 moths with 22 macro species and 1 micro. New for us this year were Dark sword-grass (3), Common lutestring, Heart and dart, May highflyer, Silver-ground carpet, and Dwarf pug (first at the reserve for 9 years). Others included Lesser swallow prominent, Pale tussock (6), Common marbled carpet, Small phoenix, Nut-tree tussock, White ermine, Barred umber, and Water carpet. The micro was Eudonia angustea , only 1 but probably many more to come given the wonderful mossy carpet in that bit of woodland.
