Moth Night (Morning) update

Further to Alastair’s post, whilst it is probably too late to put on an official event I will have two light traps running in the Harris Garden overnight. All welcome to join me from 8am tomorrow to open them and see what we catch.

This would also be a good moment to point out that Reading is competing in a ‘University Moth Challenge’, organised and supported by A Focus On Nature and Butterfly Conservation. Similar to the bird challenge (in which we did very well) there are a number of categories, including number of species and individuals recorded and number of participants. The competition is very much aimed at students, so we’re looking for as many as are interested to get involved.
