Reading Rosemary's posts can be depressing (50 moths , 30 species) for some, so here is a bit of comfort for those that, like me, are experiencing hard times.

09/05 just 3 moths of 2 species. I blame the full Moon for this one.
17/05 - 9 moths of 7 species with 0 micros.

I did manage 3 NFY - Poplar hawk Moth, Pale Prominent and a Marbled Coronet.

I probably haven't made 30 species all year so unless something happens soon, 2017 could go down as a sad year for moths at St. Ishmaels.

Marloes is also very quiet - I haven't had a trap with more than 16 species all year - and recently the species count has been going down - last trap had 11 species.

should start picking up soon - lots of insects on the wing today
