Crepuscular creepings

As darkness fell last night an owl passed by with pretty long wings. When darkness fell a Tawny was calling but this looked more like it might be maybe a Long-eared.

Woodcocks flew over the trees with their loud trodden-on-squeaky-dog-toy squeaks and soon darkness fell.

An Early Grey moth was caught at a flowering willow, and on the road two Water Carpet moths and a Shoulder-striped. A couple of micro moths made up the picture for an interesting nocturnal  visit. Both Early Grey and Shoulder-striped are new to the reserve list.
