Sep 12th Mousehold Heath

The Moon
Tonight was (possibly) the last moth night of 2016 at Mousehold. It was a fine night with a bright moon in the sky. It was a good turn up for this event and we did get a good number of moths for this time of year too. Most of them were large yellow underwings, but we did have a few other things in the trap, including a couple of hornets! Here's some of the highlights...
