Seeing the Changes 233

In Bynea and Penclacwydd, the spell of high pressure released clouds of butterflies onto the remaining Butterfly bush, Hemp agrimony and Ragwort. The most numerous were Painted ladies (Cynthia cardui), followed by Small tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae) and Red admirals (Vanessa atalanta). They were joined by Silver Y moths (Autographa gamma) too big for the waiting crab spider.
