On June 2006 a Moth Watch Evening was held at the Hillingdon Athletic Club by the Ruislip and District Natural History Society. It was led by Moth expert Ched George who started the evening by showing some moths he had captured the previous evening together with exhibits and books.

 

A couple of large lights were placed onto white sheets and we waited until it got dark to see what it attracted. The varieties were plentiful and the colours of the moths were amazing.

 

Below are some of the moths I managed to photograph, we saw 65 different species in total!
