Tan-y-bwlch - sheet and light

Thanks to Chloe for organising the event last night with Penparcau Community Wildlife Group.

There were around a dozen people came to see the moths, but not many moths wanted to see us last night unfortunately.
Fifteen species as I remember but Chloe was keeping count so will put me right if I missed one  or two I'm sure.

Flounced Rustic, Small Square-spot, Square-spot Rustic, Common Carpet. Feathered Gothic, Orange Swift, Lesser Yellow Underwing, Flame Shoulder.
Captotriche marginae, Common Plume (Emmelina monodactyla), White-shouldered House Moth (Endrosis sarcitrella), LBAM (Epiphyas postvittana), Celypha lacunana, Celypha striana, Bactra lancealana.
