Its blowing an absolute gale here on the Llyn coast today, gusts of 40/50 miles an hour and forecast to get worse as the remains of Hurricane Hanna hit the west coast of Britain tonight. Not many butterflies around this afternoon but there are hundreds of Silver Y all along the coast I walked this afternoon and a few dozen in my garden on Lavender when I got back at 6pm. Might be well worth running those garden traps for a few nights now just to see if any migrants turn up on the front of the gale. Assuming I and the van are still in one piece in the morning and its not peeing down I will check the coastal fringe to see if any goodies have come in and report back.
