Mossmorran 31st July

Head torch 21:45-22:30

An intended trip to Falkland vanished away under rain but Mossmorran remained clear for a brief spell allowing a few nice moths to be picked up. Hoped for a Single-dotted Wave as it would have been a new hectad record, but none were forthcoming.

Agriphila tristella, Common Grass-veneer, were out and about in numbers, there was a Pandemis heparana, Dark Fruit-tree Tortri, and some moss moths (i.e. Scopariinae), one of which I took and have no final determination on yet - a Eudonia or Scoparia.
