I put my moth light out on Friday 21st April in Nether Kellet.

The following moth was attracted to the light and rested on the outside of the window.

Agonopterix alstromeriana (?)

On Friday 27th April 2017, the following moths were trapped and recorded. However the highlight of the night was a low overhead flyby of a Tawny Owl. The moth light lit the underside of the owl and the moment was amazing.
