Ynys-hir moths

For the event at the RSPB reserve we set 5 traps. Despite the temperature falling to 6 C overnight, we had 335 macro moths of 72 species. A Suspected and Rosy Wave were unexpected new species for the reserve. Other notables were Dog's Tooth, Double Dart, Round-winged Muslin, Muslin Footman, Striped, Smoky, Southern and Common Wainscot, Lilac Beauty, Minor Shoulder-knot, and Lackey.
