A Halloween Special

Wednesday, October 26th 2016

Another diverse day which started with the emptying of the moth trap we had put out yesterday evening. Yesterday’s mild conditions seem to bring out the moths which resulted in 9 species including The Sprawler below.

And to underline the coming season the December Moth

While the team collated the information for the moth records we attended to the Halloween Event in the Field Centre activity room
There were a mixed bag of activities; four inside activities and one outside.

Pumpkins galore!


Paper chains and creepy spiders!

On the other tables were bats

and the obligatory witches broomstick making with Ruth and Charlie

Thank you to all the helpers, including parents and grandparents.

To change the subject slightly, Glennis took this picture of a Chaffinch (back ground) and Brambling (facing left) which clearly shows the difference in plumage.
