Friday 11th to Saturday 12th September 2015, 9.00pm-11.00am

Friday 11th - Saturday 12th September National Moth Night Set traps around Pensychnant at 9pm and stay as late as you will, or be lazy and see the catch 11am on Saturday at the house with a cup of tea. I will convince you that moths are not just boring and brown (some are brown, but none are boring!) as we examine the previous night’s catch. Good photo opportunities. Details from Julian at Pensychnant (01492) 592595
