Little Thorn at Melincwrt

This Nationally Notable B moth was recorded by Jenny Colley in her garden trap last night, this constituting a new record for the10km square SN80. It is very scarce in the west of Glamorgan having previously only been seen at 3 other sites. It occurs in woodlands where Bilberry grows in the field layer, but is clearly very choosey about which woods it inhabits as it appears to be absent form many sites that seem potentially suitable.
