The night was extremely warm, though a breeze probably reduced the catch somewhat.
The best macros were Little Emerald, Oblique Carpet, Beautiful Carpet, Larch Pug, Dwarf Pug, Blomer's Rivulet, Small Seraphim, Clouded Magpie, Lilac Beauty, Brussels Lace and Double Dart.
The most interesting micros was Capperia britanniodactylus - a plume moth feeding on wood sage which is new to Montgomeryshire. Others included: Calybites phasianipennella, Triaxomera fulvimitrella, Monochroa tenebrella and Dichrorampha montanana.
