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!

Polecat Produces Plenty!

The weather conditions have been really good for the last three nights (and look decent tonight for a garden trapping), and although I failed to do anything two nights ago, I made up for it last night.  I trapped at a woodland site near me in Haslemere called Polecat Valley.  I only trapped up to 12, but no doubt I would have done it for longer if it weren't for the fact that I had work the next morning.  Not as busy a night as Holmen's Grove, but still decent numbers with 72 moths.  These included the unexpected lifer of Waved Carpet.
