Biodiversity survey July 2017

On 15th July 2017 the West Wales Biodiversity Information Centre volunteers came to our site to conduct a wildlife survey. The night before 5 moth traps were set up.

Unfortunately on the day it rained but luckily that meant that most of the volunteers present were able to help empty the moth traps and identify over 130 different species of moths! This is apparently the most the WWBIC have recorded on one site.
