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!

Lobes of moths at the marshland

The destination for mothing last night was the water meadows of Godalming - the Lammas Lands. Yet again, conditions were warm, but not at all cloudy, and we got good numbers, which included the hoped for wetland species. In fact in amongst the 53 macro species, all four lifers were moths of wet habitats. The new ones were Dingy Shears, Double Lobed, Lesser Cream Wave, and Large Twin-spot Carpet. Also yet another Kent Black Arches, but this time much more surprising (habitat wrong!).
