Llanmadoc v Gorseinon

Sandra and myself were visting our good friends Paul & Veronica Shenston last night. Veronica's a keen moth'er too and when we asked what she'd caught recently we were amazed at the difference between the catch at their place and ours. On the night of the 9th-10th April, here's is a list of what turned up in each of our traps, note we both use exactly the same trap:
