Clifden Nonpareil in Llangeitho

 Recent trappings here have produced very modest yields, in the 20s and 30s and last night was no exception with just 31 moths, 18 species.

...near the bottom of the trap was my first Clifden Nonpareil. I had changed the trap light to one with eight, rather than four LEDs, along the lines of that developed by Gunnar Brehm, but I think the CN was luck rather than three extra UV LEDs.

Others included Brindled Green (also new to me), Rosy Rustic, Light Emerald and a Rusty-dot Pearl. Sometimes, quality is preferable to quantity!
