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!

Buddleia comes up trumps

I checked out (tiny) buddleia last night and found a new species for the garden. The gothic is said to be widespread but uncommon in Surrey. It is one of those species that does not come readily to light and is best found by searching nectaring sites. (I have a small list of moths in my garden that I've only ever seen by dusking or searching flowers by torchlight. Lychnis and dwarf cream wave are other examples.)
