Moth Night

Our local moth experts carried out a moth watch on a calm summers evening on the 28th August. Two locations were chosen within the Jubilee Wood and once the equipment was set up and dusk rolled in all the creatures of the night put in an appearance, mostly moths and the occasional Grasshopper. Its good to report that the wood is healthy in terms of the expected and noted finds in all things moth.

I’m grateful to Andrew Frost and his two colleagues for taking the time to come and survey the Jubilee Wood. They may revisit in the autumn to find species that are more likely to be found in that time of the year.
