Its a Beauty and Heath Trap???



High winds and rain battered the house last night so I was expecting little in the trap this morning.To say i am pleased with this Oak Beauty is an understatement.Its also the latest one i have on record.?Also over the last few days,Pale Pinion,Early Thorn,Double striped Pug and the usual Orthosia sp.
I picked up 3 Heath Traps yesterday from Marion(many thanks)but I am at a bit of a loss of how to assemble them and if I have all the bits,any help would be appreciated

Andy...there should be a large plastic "funnel" with each trap which sits in the hole in the top. You then simply sit the vane with the light on top of this. The batteries will run all night when charged. One battery per trap.

One other thing is there a specific battery charger for this type of battery.?
