Red Sword-grass in Gorseinon

Last night I ran the moth trap in the garden for the first time since the 11th October. Only seven species, but this handsome Red Sword-grass made the effort worthwhile. This is a localised species of marshes and boggy ground is a new species for the garden list.
The other species trapped were Streak (1), Feathered Thorn (1), Chestnut (4), Dark Chestnut (1), Brick (1) and Angle Shades (1).
