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!

fag-ends of March

At last I'm getting a few moths that are not Orthosiae (quakers and relations). The Diurnea fagella was from last night and the other three species from 31st March:

oak nycteoline (easily mistaken for a micro)

Engrailed (indistinguishable from small engrailed and probably the same species)

Diurnea fagella

Brindled pug (one of the first to appear and quite large for a pug)
Things should start to liven up from now on, especially where warm days are followed by cloudy nights.
