Back to Bucks

I've been away enjoying the sunshine and moths of Gower. Some of my sightings there are posted in the GMRG Blog (link on the right) so I won't repeat them here, suffice to say I saw a LOT of new moths, and a lot of more common ones as well. Moths appear to be thriving there!

I have been running my garden trap, for the GMS recording scheme and also last night to give the MV light a go before wet weather returns. The new and interesting moths were:
