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!

A Lunar-tics O-pinion

Conditions last night were not ideal, as it had not been a particularly warm day, and cloud cover was at a minimum. Some nice moths were caught in the garden however, including a few new for the year. Best was my second record of Lunar-spotted Pinion. Interestingly, my first record was on the very first night I ever trapped in the garden, two years ago to the day!
