Trapping at Sessay Wood, Pilmoor

I spent 3 hours trapping with a light over a sheet at Sessay Wood last night, and there were plenty of moths about, with by biggest ever March catch.  This in addition to an interesting night sky, with Mars, Jupiter and Venus all showing well, and missed Mercury in low cloud at sunset.
