A field less ordinary….

The field adjacent to Llanwrthwl church is earmarked for new houses – it has been since the mid-80s. As a result it is generally neglected. The grass is cut late in the season, it does not get covered in nitrogen and has just a few cattle turned on to it every so often. As it is opposite the house, I have rarely entered it until last week when I took a good look around. Its full of flowering plants and grasses and as a result attracts lots of moths, butterflies and other insects. It is probably one of the reasons I get such a variety of moths in the trap.
