Last Friday...

A couple of belated images from last Friday, featuring two of the most exciting things that could possibly ever happen: a solar eclipse AND a moth-trapping session.

There was an annoying cloud covering the sun for much of the morning, but luckily it cleared a couple of minutes to spare, giving us enough time to scramble together an old shoebox with a pinhole ready for peak totality. 

Blackhouse Woods - 8 of us set up moth traps along this woodland ride, whilst a fantastic sun set behind the Malvern Hills.
