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!

The Cold Shoulder Over, as my Ground Takes the Silver

Thankfully, last night had decent cloud cover, which has been lacking recently, so I haven't trapped in the garden for a week. I managed a great rounded total of 50 moths of 25 species. Having not trapped for so long, I of course expected some new for year, but I also got three new for the garden in the shape of two Silver-ground Carpet, a Pale-shouldered Brocade, and a Dusky Brocade, the latter two being brand new to me. Also of note was a stunning Purple Clay, and a much more pristine Marbled White Spot.
