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!

Anyone want my Brindleds?

Yet another scorching day, so I had to give the trap a go in the garden last night, despite still clear skies. Once I got to the trap, I was just about able to force my way through the floods of Brindled Pugs to find something different! A first for the garden was awaiting, as a Red Chestnut appeared, along with my second record of Oak-tree Pug. A little more variety in terms of species, but Brindleds aside, still not great numbers.

23rd April:
91 Brindled Pug (just an estimate if truth be told!)
4 Oak-tree Pug NFY
4 Hebrew Character
3 Clouded Drab
2 Common Quaker
2 Shuttle-shaped Dart
1 Red Twin-spot Carpet
1 Garden Carpet NFY
1 Frosted Green
1 Red Chestnut NFG
