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!

Lazy Grey

Well, what an appaling spring we've had in terms of weather.  As a result, I have not trapped at all this year (although to be honest, I have also been a little lazy too!).  That was until last night, where, in my new garden, I got a modest first catch of 28 moths of 8 species.

Here's to a good mothing year!

14th April:

11 Common Quaker
6 Hebrew Character
4 Early Grey
2 Clouded Drab
2 Small Quaker
1 Brindled Pug

1 Diurnea fagella
1 Light Brown Apple Moth
(+ 1 Common Plume whilst setting up)

Early Grey

So quiet!

You can tell by the lack of blog posts here how dismal the mothing has been of late.

But things seem to be picking up at and the last two nights have seen some moths in the trap, particularly Oak Beauty and Small Quakers.  Last night was particularly pleasing though with some 24 Small Quaker, 3 Oak Beauty, a Clouded Drab, Hebrew Character, a Twin-spotted Quaker and a Herald...let's hope it lives up to its name!
