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!

Blossom Underwing

Many thanks to Richard Bartlett for this image of a smart Blossom Underwing caught in his Nutfield garden on the 1st April (it's certainly no April Fools!). Whilst moths caught on the south coast are often believed to be migrants, our Blossom Underwings are no doubt part of the resident population. Unlike similar early-season Orthosia, this is far from a common 'garden moth', and as far as I'm aware is only well distributed in more rural parts of the county where it requires mature oaks for the larvae to feed on. 


  1. Brilliant. Thanks for sharing Bill. only ever seen the larva in the wild.
    All the best.

  4. Hi everyone,I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she use witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help get ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it, then he did a love spell for me. 22hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me so much, Oh My God! i was so happy, and today i am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together and i thank the powerful spell caster Dr.Wealthy, he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Wealthy for help now..Here’s his email, wealthylovespell@gmail.com
