Last Nights Moths 20/8/08

The rather unsettled summer weather continues which unfortunately is lowering numbers and species range at the Actinic Moth Trap in my garden at Edern. Last night looked promising with cloudy skies and a warmish breeze but as the night progressed the rain got heavier and any sensible moths departed back to cover
