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!

My garden is into the Black

A solid but unspectacular night in the garden, with 64 moths of 29 species.
Amongst them were several second records for the year, but only one new one. A few nice micros included a Diamond-back moth, a large micro that I believe was Phycita roborella (neither of which co-operated for the camera), and the green shiny moth below. Help with its ID would be appreciated.
