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!

I've Hooked myself a Scalloped

Conditions were right on the edge last night, which means I wondered whether it was really worth running the trap, with many clear spells. Numbers therefore were not as good as recently, but better than expected. But I think it was worth it, as I got an unexpected garden tick.
Amongst 59 moths of 31 species was a surprise Scalloped Hook-tip, although no other highlights to speak of.
