Gilfachreda Garden

A mild night brought forth 6 new species for the year. A total of 19 species trapped - but no micros.

Brimstone Moth

Lunar Marbled Brown

Poplar Hawk-moth

White Ermine

Flame Shoulder

Nut-tree Tussock


  1. Despite the late start to warmer weather there are only 7 records of Poplar Hawk-moth which are earlier than this. Notably 4 of those were in 2011, does anyone remember the weather in 2011?

  2. Micros seem very thin on the ground this year...for instance, NO postvittana (LBAM) yet for us! Amazing.
