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!

Theres No Smoke Without Cloud

For the first time in ages, we had a cloudy night here, and it did produce the second best night of the year with 76 moths of 33 species, although amongst them was only two year ticks, and one new for the garden - a little disappointing.
The garden tick was a long overdue, although faded, Blotched Emerald. Smoky Wainscot and Clouded Border were new for the year. Also another Elephant Hawk-moth, but a very tatty one.
