Ynys-hir in the rain

14 + species in the trap last night which was under cover due to the promise of heavy rain.
The + is for 4 carpet moths which are refusing to open their wings and the Nov aggs...but I am waiting patiently! The carpets are probably Spruce of Grey Pine but only time will tell.

Also, Acrolepia autumnitella a county first caught by a member of RSPB staff (Ellie) in the visitor centre yesterday, only tiny but very welcome!
