Moth Trapping Tonight

If anyone is interested, I will be running my moth trap near the Cwmbach portal of the Merthyr tunnel (SO02400270) this evening, from around 20:45.


  1. Can't make it, working in the morning, hope you get a good night.

  2. You didn't miss much, Mike. Despite the temperatures holding up better than forecast and staying in double figures, the catch after five hours trapping was just 31 moths of 19 species, including two species of micro still to be identified. Only two Large Yellow Underwing, says it all really. The highlights were four Black Arches and an Autumnal Rustic. I might post a photo of the Black Arches later.
    At least it was an evening out of the house!
