Took the mutts for a late evening walk through the extensive lush grasslands of Tirpentwys Local Nature Reserve just north of Pontypool. The sun was setting and the grassland lepidoptera were bedding down for the evening. The butterfly list included Essex and small skippers, small heath, peacock, marbled white, meadow brown, ringlet, small white and common blue. Botanically ladies bedstraw was widespread. The day flying moth Pyrausta purpuralis also showed.
