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!

witch hunt

Mother Shipton was a witch, apparently, and she has a moth named after her. I've seen the species often enough in meadows and stream-side vegetation but they seem to like perching deep in the vegetation. I didn't manage to get a great shot but at least it's recognisable. I also got on friendly terms with a large skipper in the same meadow... and a blood-vein.
