There were also some new micro moths for Bardsey. Number one was a Crambid which I'm pretty sure is Agriphila inquinatella, although feel free to correct me. Next one up was a species of Coleophora, that didn't look like the C.albicosta that I've seen before. So I'm fairly sure that it is in fact C. discordella
What I think are Agriphila inquinatella and Coleophora discordella- any other thoughts?
For last night I lugged the Heath trap and a 12 volt battery up the mountain to see what I could catch in the calm weather. Unfortunately the wind picked up overnight, the result being a disappointing catch with the highlights being two Narrow-winged Pugs (third and fourth for the island)
Whilst up on the mountain I managed to find another first for Bardsey, this Neofaculta ericetella...
One more micro from today that I found in my garden-a Tortrix that looks pretty good for Choristoneura hebenstrieitella. Another first for the island!
