However under clearing skies there were not that many moths about. But we did get a few good ones.
The highlights were this metallic grey Pale Tussock (Calliteara pudibunda);
and a Scarce Prominent (Odontosia carmelita)

The rarest moth of the evening though was a Dusky Peacock (Macaria signaria). This moth would no doubt have been passed off by me as a regular “Peacock Moth” (Macaria notata), had not the Sussex Moth Group members seen it.

So my heartfelt thanks to the Sussex Moth Group, David Bonsell and the Woodland Trust.
