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!

20st-21nd July- NE Surrey

Last night (21st) was poor weather wise, with a clear sky, cold temperatures and a bright moon looming over the garden for most of the night. So it didn't come as a surprise that there were few moths in the trap when I turned the light off at 2am.

Luckily though, this Waved Black made up for the poor tally, my first nationally notable moth for the garden...

And this Agriphila tristella made a new addition to the slowly increasing micro list...

The night before was somewhat better, with 34 species, including 7 totally new for the garden, and not 1 but 2 Tree-lichen Beauties! New for the garden were...
Dot Moth
Ruby Tiger
Cloaked Minor
Dusky Sallow
Lesser-spotted Pinion
Bright-line Brown-eye
Swallow-tailed Moth

Dusky Sallow...

Lesser-spotted Pinion...
