Aberystwyth Municipal Cemetery - Moth Survey (2015). GAG carried out this survey with the help of members of the Ceredigion Moth Group. This is a follow up to the Cemetery Management Plan, written by GAG and adopted by Ceredigion CCC. It gives a base line reference with the intention of demonstrating the benefits of the new management regime to wildlife and so supporting CCC action.

Craig Lais (Constitution Hill)
ABSTRACT: In a four year survey of night-flying moths at Craig-lais,
immediately to the north of Aberystwyth, thirteen nationally scarce
species of moth were recorded. Within Ceredigion, a similarly high
number of notable species is extremely unlikely to be recorded other
than in (or near) National Nature Reserves. The majority of the
The Moths of Craig-lais (Constitution Hill) 2016 by Peter Major.
:Moths represent vital food sources for a wide range of other animals and pollinate many flowers. Well over 2000 species of moth breed in Britain but there has been a recent dramatic decline in the numbers of many of them, raising concerns about our lack of knowledge of where many of these species occur. During 2016, a light-trap was run periodically at a single site within the Craigyfulfran and Clarach SSSI, immediately to the north of Aberystwyth, in order to identify which species of moth live at this site. 145 species of moth were recorded, including five nationally scarce species. Several of the moths are species found exclusively on coastal grassy scree, indicating the importance of the site for the conservation of biodiversity. The report includes photographs of some of the moths, brief recommendations on the management of the site for wildlife and a discussion of the likely benefits of limiting light pollution at and near the site.
Parc Natur Penglais
Moth survey of Parc Natur Penglais Bryn y Mor Extension (2016) by Peter Major & Peter Walters Davies.
Parc Natur Penglais (PNP), on the north side of Aberystwyth, was established as a Local Nature Reserve in 1995. In 2015, a strip of land (approximately 350 m long and 80 m at its widest), to the west of the Aberystwyth Golf Course, was incorporated by Ceredigion County Council into PNP as a northwards extension from the disused quarry area of the reserve.
