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!

Norbury the Centre of moth activity

On the 28th August, I went to Norbury Park near Dorking to spend an evening on the meadows there. Although conditions were again fairly cold, we got a decent haul, that included a new species. In the end we got at least 12 Centre-barred Sallows. We also managed a couple of Hedge Rustics, which are apparently now a BAP species (forgotten what that stands for, but it means the species is in deep decline).

I am now all up to date, but I am still without the internet at home, so I may well have to catch up again in the future (although with the weather as it is at the moment, it may not be that bad (I have not trapped in the garden since the 21st because of that).
