Moth Nights

We trap many migrant as well as local moths and the traps are always full of interesting species. In fact the car park at the observatory is a recognised moth hot spot! The latest sightings can be seen HERE and the latest annual moth report can be found HERE

The moth evenings mostly start at 6.30pm.
