Moth night sat 7th

 Arrivals from 9.00pm for a start time of 9.30pm should do it. Usual clothes for weather and a torch.

Two weeks ago on a cold breezy night we had :

1 x herald, 1 x flame carpet, 3 x common Quaker, 1 x powdered quaker, 1 x small quaker, and 1 x early tooth striped.

Not too bad for the weather that night.

See whoever then.
