Talybont Garden and some lovely warm drizzle

 I often am asked what are the best conditions for moth trapping.  I always say warm drizzle is by far the best and last night proved the point.

Like lots of other moth-ers we have had a terrible start to the year.  In fact it was often an occasion for celebration to have one moth!

So although not an over-large catch 25 species was wonderful.  A few photos below, please excuse the quality as they were taken in a hurry.   Ina and Tony
