Annual Moth Night Highlights for 2017:

Our event was held on July 26, which turned out to be a rainy evening. The observations included a record high number of Gypsy Moths (15) and record low number of total species (45), of which 5 were new for this event.

In spite of the less than promising conditions we were glad we went ahead anyway as those who did attend were quite keen and had a great time, especially the kids.
