'Twas enough to dislodge my hairpiece

Went in search of the grizzled skipper at Blaenserchan but hadn't appreciated the strength of the wind. The only respite was found in the valley bottom and even here things that rely on taking to the air were conspicuous by their absence. The only butterflies noted were a couple of small pearl boarded fritillary taken in a sweep net and a worn day flying moth by the name of Pyrausta aurata.
