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!

Tice as Nice

I was involved in leading a small mothing event last night at Tice's Meadow, Badshot Lea, which is a regenerating wetland site with willow scrub, and an area of a huge range of young planted native trees and shrubs.  I set up two traps by the wetland area, but the weather was against us, with an almost clear sky.  This site definitely warrants further investigation next year.  As a result of the weather, no unusual macros were seen, but three micro lifers were got.  These hinted at the quality of the wetland here.
