More good migrants flooding in

I had another excellent trap last night with two migrant species worth a mention.

Firstly I recorded four, yes four, vestal, a scarce migrant to Montgomeryshire, normally just the odd moth is found, so four in a single night is exceptional.

The other species was the Small Marbled again a scarce migrant to the uk which has only ever been recorded once before in the county (at the same site) in 2008.



  1. That Small Marbled is beautiful!

  2. Not yet got a Vestal at CD....maybe another attempt at the weekend. Excellent news that all these migrants are being recorded!
