and to round off the Moths for today a
Apart from flashing up the traps at dusk we take to watching the
Denizens of the Night such as Woodcock, Nightjars and of course Owls. of the middle contenders we usually just sit in the Mobile Bird Hide and watch for where they land and in the hope of viewing a nest but ALWAYS at a safe distance, not to disturb. Last year it was

Josh 8 and Sophie 5 then
who immersed themselves in the study of Moths as well.
