After a couple of false starts due to the weather the Moth Night went ahead as England faced the Italians in the European Cup. As England kicked off a Crane flew over the reserve. A Roe Deer barked from the Railway land and the noisy ‘Kreeharr ‘ of a Black-headed Gull brought attention to a Noctule as it flew over towards its feeding ground. About 500 Starlings came in to roost in the reed bed of the Slurry lagoon. Unfortunately the moths were not quite as interesting but a Lime Hawkmoth brightened up everybody’s evening.
