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!

Plenty to Drink at Broadstreet / Slender quality in the garden

A couple of nights ago we had a go at mothing at Broadstreet Common near Guildford, but a little rained hindered us. We did manage macro highlights of Kent Black Arches, Small Scallop, and Cream Wave. We also got loads of Drinker including a large female. Among the micros were the grassland specialist Isophrictis striatella, and the boldly marked Pammene aurana.

Last night in the garden, it was cloudy, but not really warm. Surprisingly, numbers were my best for three weeks, with 23 species. The only notable was a Slender Brindle.
