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!

Saints and Cinnabars

Yet another warm day yesterday (getting bored of them yet?), so thought it was worth a punt with the trap.  It was, as this new trap seems to be able to glean new moths for my tiny garden left, right, and centre.  Another two today bringing my garden macro list to 265 in (nearly) three years.  These were a White-pinion Spotted and a surprise Cinnabar (usually a day-flyer, but does still come to light traps occasionally), but still not great numbers in the trap though.
