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!

Up on the Downs again

Another attempt at Pewley Downs last evening with Paul Wheeler gave limited success, despite the warm start. Don't get me wrong, plenty of nice moths were seen, but nothing new. Best was probably my second Clouded Brindle, Festoon, and Triple-spotted Clay (I still can't 'do' the latter!).

CORRECTION: In the blog entry for the Pewley Downs session on June 3rd, the Coronet I have labelled as Varied, is in fact a Marbled, which is a lifer!
