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 rather Buff catch

A reasonably good catch last night, although it would be nice if the warm airflow returns. 42 moths of 25 species included a Buff Ermine which is new for the garden, and a Sycamore which is only my second, also a very smart fresh Coronet. Nice to get some more Hawk moths too.
