Flashing Light with twilight switch

Flashing light is very useful in order to indicate any obstruction or working in progress. The project automatic flashing light with twilight switch flash light in dark but during day it automatically turns off itself.
Circuit Description
The circuit diagram of automatic flashing light with twilight switch is shown below where LDR is used as sensor. In the presence of light LDR offer low resistance and in dark it offers high resistance. When there is absence light, LDR offer high resistances which turn off the transistor T1. Due to this darlington pair made from transistor T2 and T3 is turn on which further glow bulb. The feedback from its output is given to the junction of resistor R2 and LDR as shown in circuit diagram. Due to feedback this circuit works as oscillator which work as flasher. Variable resistor VR1 is used to adjust the sensitivity of LDR.
