Burnet bounty

Thousands of six-spot burnet were emerging from the grassland around Coity Tip this afternoon. Thistle heads were frequently home for a dozen or more moths. Coity Pond was quiet but for a distant reed bunting, grey heron and a single cormorant. Don't forget to look out for the related forester moth. My last personal record was from Blaenserchan about 10 years ago - they must still be around!
