Ceredigion Moths and Dragonflies

I took my trap down to Aberystwyth last week and although the catches weren'y that good, I managed a few nice ones.
It's been a while since I've seen a Chinese Character - lovely moths.
 Orange Swift was particularly common around the caravan.
 GoldSpot - always great to see.

A walk around Tregaron Bog saw the emergence of several hundred if not thousands of Dragon and Damselflies. I managed several species - Black Darter, Common Darter, Emerald Damselflt, Common Blue Damselfly, Common Darter, Emperor and Banded Damselfly. I also had Migrant Hawker at the caravan site.
 Black Darter
 Common Hawker
 Common Darter
 Common Blue Damselfly
 Hoverfly sp. Any help appreciated.
