Bottle Alley

convulvulus hawkmoth in bottle alley
Bottle Alley is like a giant moth trap and sometimes large numbers of moths are attracted to the lights along the covered walkway including many migrants which have crossed the channel.

Bats are also occasionally attracted to the insects present in Bottle Alley at night and sometimes roost during the day on the walls.

Bottle Alley has to be one of the most unusual places for wildlife watching in Britain.
