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!

Its Green for moths as Frost departs

Conditions really looked good last night, with lots of cloud, although it was a little breezy. I ended up getting very similar numbers to my last couple of trappings in clear conditions, but that was still excellent. 30 moths of 7 species included a new species for the garden in the shape of a Frosted Green. It was a lot 'greener' in the flesh.

14 Common Quaker
5 Small Quaker
3 Brindled Pug NFY
3 Clouded Drab
3 Hebrew Character
1 Twin-spotted Quaker
1 Frosted Green NFG
+ 2 Black Burrying Beetles
