National Moth Night

This year National Moth Night is being held on 23rd September. It was launched in 1999 and has taken place annually since then, the date varying each year in order to focus recording effort on different parts of the season.

Public events are being held around Britain. These tend to be pretty good – especially if you’re new to mothing and could do with experts on hand to point stuff out.

I’m hoping SU’s own mothman, aestivaria, gets his trap out and captures some for his wonderful Flickr collection.

Update: 24th Sept: Nothing spectacular here – but I did see a Hummingbird Hawkmoth in the garden for the first time this summer.
