Aberystwyth garden

A rather meagre haul last night - 24 moths of 19 species - was improved by a Bordered Straw. Less notable FFYs included Elephant Hawk Moth, Knot Grass and White-spotted Pug, and it was good to see Tawny-barred Angle in the garden trap.

I've had up to two Tachystola acroxantha in the trap recently (but not last night) and Alder and Marbled Coronet last weekend.

My micro-seeking perambulations elsewhere have been moderately successful: Dichrorampha plumbagana at Tanybwlch, Phyllonorycter geniculella near Bow Street, and Epinotia subocellana at Cross Inn.
