...3 Vice Counties that is: East Gloucestershire, Breconshire and East Kent.
A weekend trip to a wedding in the Brecon Beacons offered plenty of opportunity for moth recording much further afield with a stop-over in Gloucestershire on the way.
Ran the 125W MV in a rural garden in Grafton, Gloucestershire, close to a blossoming Sallow and had probably the best March night I've ever had:
112 Small Quaker
47 Clouded Drab
39 Hebrew Character
19 Common Quaker
11 Twin-spotted Quaker
5 Lead Coloured Drab (NFY)
5 Red Chestnut (NFY)
2 Engrailed (NFY)
Double striped Pug (NFY)
Pale Pinion (NFY)
Early Thorn (NFY)
Although busy with the wedding, manged a few species around the lighted windows/security lights of the hotel (near Bwlch):
Red Sword-grass (NFY) - or what was left of it in a spider's web:
Mottled Grey (NFY)
Plus Psychoides filicivora mines and possibly its congener, P. verhuella (larvae being reared through but will also have closer inspection in the week).
On return home and cold, foggy conditions, still fired up the garden trap last night which yielded zip!
But all in all a very productive weekend all round.
