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!

Webb catches very little at events

My next couple of nights out, on the 12th and 13th August, had appaling weather, so I only stayed for a couple of hours. However, both Stoke Meadows, Guildford, and Blackheath, did produce one good sighting each. At Stoke the target species appeared immediately, in the shape of two Webb's Wainscot. And Blackheath had a female Orange Swift (although neither of these are lifers):

I am not fully caught up yet, so watch this space.
