Aberystwyth Cemetery

A circuit of the cemetery last night (since the forecast didn't look good for the trap) with torch and net. I was pleased to catch a Brick, which I don't see very often. Also Black Rustic, Rusty-dot Pearl, LBAM and T. acroxantha.

 To top off the recent migrants we caught a Vestal on 22/10/22 together with a Large Wainscot which must have dispersed some way to reach us [kindly amended by Tony from earlier misidentification of Bulrush Wainscot].

Hier soir, Aberystwyth

I put the trap out in the garden for a couple of hours yesterday evening before the wind got much stronger. It was worthwhile! Two french-speaking moths, in addition to a Silver Y, Square-spot Rustics and LBAMs:
