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!

A few year-ticks

I had the trap on for a couple of hours last night while our daughter was out at a gig (and therefore a late night).
I watched lots of moths flying around the trap with lots of flies and a bat but there wasn't a great catch.
The following were new for the year:
green carpet

shoulder-striped wainscot

dark sword-grass

heart & dart

grey pine carpet

The dark sword-grass is an immigrant species as is the silver_Y

I also found my first large yellow underwing of the year in the garden earlier.

Not a moth but I was interested to see a dragon-fly larva emerge from our garden pond, climb the wall and 'release' a black-tailed skimmer (Orthetrum cancellatum).
