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!

Southern at the Meadows

There was an event last night at wetland site of Stoke Meadows, and for once, the weather was good.  I do wonder though how much I would have seen had I not left early.  Despite this, I managed a great macro lifer.  Two Southern Wainscot were trapped, the second much fresher than the first, but both had the diagnostic spots in the middle of both underwings.  Some nice wetland micros were seen including Calamotropha palludella and Orthotelia sparganella.
