We felt very privileged to be invited to the Moors annual moth count. With 5 of us on Thorne Moors, and further mothers on Crowle, lamps were soon lit and the moths arrived in droves. We had 80 species on Thorne. Haven't got the grand total yet but will post it on here when we know. 
A brilliant night in excellent company. Looking forward to the next one already !
