One move Retrograde

The following ChessPosition (see diagram) can be constructed from a normal game.

What was the last move made?

The answer has to be very specific:
-Witch side moved
-What piece is moved
-What square it moved from
-What square it arrives on
-and if a piece is taken, then you have to name that piece as well

Love this one! I was not able to crack this problem my self when I first tried. Wonder if anyone here will ...
