Moth night Cometh again!

For anybody interested - We are holding a Moth night this Saturday 29th September 8.00pm onwards.
As Autumn & winter are approaching the night temperatures are dropping, so we are now looking into "Sugar posts" as well as the light.
I shall make  up a batch of "Moth goo" based upon numerous ingredients people swear by. From what I believe it will look like, smell like, & brush like - Goo is probably the best description. This I shall splatter on a few trees/posts late in the Afternoon. We have never tried this before, so nothing to lose & apparantly some moths will only come to this & not the Lights.
Lets see which method is more productive on Sat - The Light or The Goo?

The AVIVA benches are in place.....

A riverside stop in sun or shade
The AVIVA benches were installed recently by our ever busy volunteers, with some welcome help from Robin Dalton. There are three - here are pictures of two of them - you'll have to hunt down the third for yourself. It's a good excuse for a walk!
