Lorna and I thoroughly enjoyed the moth night hosted by the RSPB last night. Thanks to all involved, particularly Josie and Beki. We were shown and told about various methods of trapping, including light trapping, wine-soaked rope trapping (!) and pheronome trapping. Surprisingly the moths were not attracted to the red wine, but we did catch lots of Map-winged Swifts in the light trap. We also heard (via the bat detector) and saw Pipistrelle bats flying round the Visitor Centre at Gruinart. Thanks also to Margaret for the delicious Gingerbread!
Photographs, or even short video clips, are particularly welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you
