Moth night sat 13th

 Start time around 10pm, with arrivals from 9.30pm. If we have this heat all week, it should be a stonker with a probability of over 50 species, at this time of year.

Nice spanking visitor centre to view them in, brewing up facilities, toilets, but television is sat nights no1, for most.

Dont watch wildlife on tv - Get out and connect with it.

See whoever then.
