Our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation More details

The moth trap was set last night out in the back garden; with mild nights we were expecting a decent catch and were not disappointed. 63 moths of 24 species were caught, with several of the spectacular summer moths making an appearance such as this Beautiful Golden-Y, named for the metallic golden marks on the forewing.

Buff Arches have 'flint-like' quality to the forewing markings and are unmistakable. The wings are etched with white and orange arches which can easily be seen when it is at rest.

If you are interested in learning more about these fascinating animals why not come along to one of our weekly moth trapping sessions - the trap is set every Tuesday evening and then emptied Wednesday morning beginning at 9am in the Field Centre.

We also have had to change the date of our moth trapping morning with Charlie Fletcher, the county recorder for moths. This is now being held on Thursday 11th September meeting at the Field Centre at 7.30am. Please let us know if you would like to attend.
