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 well named Carpet...

For mid-May, the total of fifteen moths last night was very poor, but this did include two new species for the garden.  In slightly showery conditions, the best moth was sadly dead in a nearby spiders web, but it was the very aptly named Water Carpet.  The other was two Narrow-winged Pug (its possible I've overlooked these before).

18th May:
2 Narrow-winged Pug NFG
2 Nut-tree Tussock NFY
2 Yellow-barred Brindle NFY
2 Shuttle-shaped Dart NFY
1 Flame Shoulder NFY
1 Brindled Pug
1 Peppered Moth
1 Mottled Pug NFY
1 Water Carpet NFG
1 Buff-tip NFY
1 Green Carpet NFY

Mottled Pug (not the best shot, but this was a pristine example)
