Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing

Male Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing  

  Mick had two good moths of note, Silky Wainscot and Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing, with only about ten records each trapped at Longstones. Both were new species for me, but the White-speck, that he also caught, I had seen at least 20+.

  At Porth Hellick, the first Oak Eggar was on the wing. On the pool there were 5 Greenshank and a single Common Sandpiper and a juvenile Mediteranean Gull was at Porthloo.
