Winter moths at Ynys-hir

We were tempted by a reasonable weather forecast and almost the longest night of the year to set a couple of actinic light traps in the woodland at the RSPB reserve. The result this morning was 186 moths of 6 species: Mottled Umber 107, Winter Moth 70, Scarce Umber 3, Pale Brindled Beauty 3 (the first of the season), Chestnut 2, December Moth 1.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to all contributors and readers of the Blog.
