Tony.
Great moth photos. Are you going to run a 'Moth Night' event? I went to one recently but it was a bit disappointing: the man running it was a little "uncoordinated" and the best ones escaped and flew off. The ones left behind were small, brown and hard to identify!
I've seen the terns now and had good views of the adult kestrels.

We are fairly new to trapping moths, and ID them in the mornings. Maybe sometime I will invite a few people along to an ID parade. We check through the trap between 6.30am and 7.00am.
