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!

The Least of expectations

Back to the old trap last night, and in initially clear, but then cloudy conditions, a good illustration of what I was getting at yesterday was achieved. 75 moths of 27 species is a pretty good haul for the whole night, but remember, the MV got that in two hours! Amongst this lot was new for the year Least Yellow Underwing, but the best was my second garden record of Oak Nycteoline.
