Moth morning success

Friday, June 19th 2009

We had a good haul on moth morning yesterday. There were 46 moths of 20 different species. The species with the highest number was Beautiful Golden Y of which we had 8 moths. Pictured here is a Small Elephant Hawkmoth.

10 people from Rushcliffe Country Park came for a guided walk around. Despite the rain they really enjoyed their time here.

Colburn School brought 3 children to do some conservation work. Again, because of the rain, they weren't able to do what had been planned, but nevertheless they had a good time.
