Red Kite. Lunchtime today.Very high and drifting S/E


Moth night Sat 16th

 Yes we had one last week and there is another std one next week.

Its Easter, weathers looking good, so we are slipping one in this week for fun. Last time weather was good we had an eruption of early species, good chance of a similar night this time.

Arrivals from 8.30pm  for 9.00pm start.

If your doing nothing sat, get down and check the wildlife out, instead of watching naked attraction.

Clothing for weather and torch are all you need, net if you have one.

Last week was a bit brassic, little breezy and open sky with moon. We had 4 species last week:  aganopterix heracliana, hebrew character, clouded drab, and a totally battered pug, probably a brindled, but I'm not brave enough to call it.

See whoever then.
