Lots around here in the Llyn Andy, once the gales stop !
Small Tortoisehell
Small White
Large White
Peacock
Red Admiral
Small Copper

Strangely enough no Comma's yet through. Its been far too windy with N, NW & W gales most of the week to run the moth trap. It actually been windy enough to move the van. Last night I almost got seasick with the van rocking in 50/60 mile an hour gusts !

Paul, keep an eye out for Leach's Petrels passing the coast, classic conditions and time of year for them to turn up, there's been quite a few past New Brighton/Mersey area

Hi Nick
I would have given anyone a medal had they been able to stand on the coast over the last few days. I have never been in such a strong gale and I am a mile from the coast. Should the winds ease down I shall venture forth looking for Petrels and report back...now to have a quick look through my bird book to see what they look like !

Saw a Peacock sunning itself on the garden fence on the 6th - possibly the most worn butterfly I've ever seen!
