As of March 2015, an official website for Surrey Moths has been set-up here. There you'll find information on everything to do with the Surrey Branch of Butterfly Conservation, including the updated events calender for 2015. Hope to see you there!

25th April - Ken

For once there was some cloud cover last night, which meant that I had a few moths in the trap. As well as brindled pug, I think I had a double-striped pug but it flew away before I managed to catch it - it would have been my first for the year.
Purple thorn and lunar marbled brown were noted.
The species that were new for 2010 were:
the tiny micro with a long name (about 6mm long and tricky to photo) Eriocrania subpurpurpella
nut-tree tussock
Alucita hexadactyla (also called twenty-plumed moth) - another small micro.
