Micro Moths at Ynys-hir

The previous post was Tony's record of macro moths on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
I can now add we recorded 33 species of micro moths including the two below, Agonopterix angelicella and Britain's smallest Plume, Adaina microdactyla. I'm sure you can work out which is which!
We must have lost a lot more as the moths were very lively I think due to the warmth and heavy rain shower just as we were collecting the traps, unfortunately we could not give them chance to settle as this was a public event for the RSPB. Well we all enjoyed the fly-past! 💨
