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!

Number of moths Pale into insignificance....

Numbers remain reasonable, although it was fairly windy last night. In very similar circumstances to yesterday, I got 37 moths of 22 species, and these included a new species for the garden of Pale Oak Beauty, and a new for the year Setaceous Hebrew Character. Also a probable Middle-barred Minor, which is also new for garden.
