Come and be part of national Moth Night! We will be raising funds to purchase a Moth Trap and we welcome members and friends to come and see what is there on Green Dale.
Moth Night is the annual celebration of moth recording throughout Britain and Ireland by enthusiasts with local events aimed at raising awareness of moths among the general public.
Every year Moth Night has a theme, although recorders are always welcome and encouraged to do their own thing. The theme for 2015 is Migration.
Events nationally are confined to the warmest months and each event lasts for three consecutive nights (Thursday – Saturday) with the event taking place on different date periods every year. Recording can take place on any one or more of these days or nights. Ours will take place on Saturday the 12th of September. For more information about the national event see here - http://www.mothnight.info/.
We will also take the opportunity to record bat activity on the site.
Exact timings will be confirmed nearer the date, do put a note in your calendars now.
