I think we all thought we were in for a quiet night when we set off in the cool, blustery conditions but it was surprisingly calm and quite mild in the craggs and the moths didn't disappoint.Present were Andy, Brian Martyn and myself.
Highlight for me were my first ever Yellow Horneds.
Andy did well to spot this Ypsolopha ustella resting high up in a Beech tree.
This red variety of Pine Beauty certainly lived up to it's name.
Micros were well represented on the night with pick of the bunch for me this Tortricodes alternella (Photographed at home).
