Thirteen species on the night of the 13th

 We were promised a minimum of 5 degrees last night but the reading in the car was only 2 so 58 individuals of 13 species at Ynys-hir was a reasonable result. 

As we are both still a little incapacitated (not as mobile) at the moment I decided not to risk another 'round' with the brambles so did not go too far into the woods where we may have found one or two more species, I was hoping for a Pine Beauty!
