The night went well, my trap running until well after two. The showers kept off and after initially cooling down under clear skies, it warmed up as overcast conditions moved in after midnight.
We had an interesting time and quite good catches, the night being made more enjoyable by the amazing absence of biting insects.
My DSLR was occupied for a couple of hours, taking a time lapse sequence of a dung fungus (the same one we found at Pwll Waun Cynon), so I didn't take many photos of the moths, but here are a couple:
George had a male Glow Worm attracted to his trap and when I went to check on my camera and its progress with the time lapse, I found this female, glowing brightly. Unfortunately, with my camera preoccupied, I only had my mobile's camera with which to photograph it. The results are rubbish, but you can just about see what it is.
