Oak Woodland - Talybont

54 species plus one (you will understand later) in a small Heath trap last night.
Riband Wave and Northern Spinach were the most numerous, 4 Welsh Waves and one each of two of my favourites, Beautiful Snout and Endotricha flammealis.  Our first Dotted Clay and Dun-bar of the year and a nice Common Emerald that would not hang around for photography...
Oh yes and the 'plus one'...a female Purple Hairstreak.

  2. Odd, must be the dry weather, normally have to search the topsite of trees!
