Over Three moth traps set out around Monaghan on the Friday night were opened in Rossmore Park on Saturday 15 July.
Over 20 volunteers joined Heather Bothwell in Rossmore. It was a hardy bunch that braved the showers. Heather Bothwell was our guide at the event and identified 18 different species of moth from the 3 traps. The highlight of the event was finding an “Old Lady” moth at Peter’s Lake.
