Moth Evening 11 August 2017

The evening was warm and it was not completely dark as David Brown, the County Moth Recorder set up two moth traps near to Finham Brook in Abbey Fields. After a slow start the moths began to arrive as darkness descended.

Although many people dislike moths and other flying insects as you can see below they can be as beautiful as Butterflies.
