Moths at Llanwrthwl

The night of the 28th November was exceptionally mild. At dusk it was apparent that a lot of moths were on the wing. They tempted me into putting out one of my moth traps – the one with the 160W blended mercury lamp – and I was glad I did. The following morning the trap contained 114 moths of 7 species :- 51 December moth 26 Winter moth 22 Mottled umber 6 Rusty-dot pearl 6 Scarce umber 2 Chestnut 1 Red green carpet
