The item hung up on a post is a beater, for use in case of fire. There are a number of these beaters placed around the site, very visible and very easy to grab.

I saw lots of small brown moths flitting about, and photographed two that I thought were different species.

You can tell the male by its lush feathery antennae, used to detect female pheromones.
Further down the slope I started to see fewer brown moths and instead came across some whitish ones. I followed a few of these, but whenever they made a landing they dived for cover, so the best shot I was able to get was partly obstructed.
