Caerau insects today

 Xanthogramma citrofasciatum - hoverfly - 1st for Caerau area
Eristalis nemorum - hoverfly showing classic behaviour trait, with male hovering above feeding female - another first for Caerau.
 Drinker moth caterpillar
 Longhorn - Rhagium bifasciatum [Two-banded Longhorn]
Longhorn - Pachytodes cerambyciformis [Speckled Longhorn]

Last night at Foel Fawr there were 2 pairs of Nightjar, the third pair has moved further over into West Glamorgan, so out of the recording area. While walking back I had a male flying around the lights on Cymmer Hill main road as the cars were passing.
