Abercregan last night.

                                    Spoladea recurvalis
                                   Red sword grass
                                   Duirnea lipsiella.
                                   I had been waiting for a dry night as good numbers
                                   of European migrant moths have been seen all along
                                   the south coast of England this week. Last night was
                                   dry so I took the light up Abercregan. Several local
                                   autumn moths were seen but the star was a tropical
                                   moth - Spoladea recurvalis, possibly a first for Wales.
                                   Other migrants were 11 Rusty dot pearl and singles of
                                   Red sword grass and Silver Y.
