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!

Cold Wisley still produces Sharp sightings

On the 7th August, I went to Wisley Common, but the weather was as cold as it could possibly be, and we only got 18 macro species. Luckily, the site was good enough to still produce a couple of lifers. One of the first moths was a Dotted Clay, and one of the last was a Sharp-angled Peacock, and we also got a Common Peacock for comparison.
