We had a really nice evening walk on Saturday after the rather iffy morning fog and drizzle. Thirty four people including 9 children came along. Several bat detectors were put into good use. These were bought by an Aviva grant awarded earlier in the year. Daubenton'sand Pipistrelle bats were located in some numbers near the calm sections of the River Calder within the reserve.

This moth, possibly a male Red Underwing was collected and released. If you know exactly then please let us know.
After a little look - I am in total agreement with you Bruce Red Underwing. Look this ones in exactly the same pose https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_underwing.
Great night enjoyed by all who attended.
