Moth Group Events
An evening of moth trapping - all welcome, beginners or experts. All events are free. We will set up lights at dusk to attract moths and then release them after identifying and recording them. You are welcome to join us for as much of the evening as suits you. Ideal to find out more about the moths of Montgomeryshire and also to get photos of moths. Events may be disrupted by bad weather therefore please check before setting off.
Please do not attend if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid19.
Bring a torch & warm clothes, and wear suitable shoes. Some sites may not be easy to find, especially in the dark, so please make sure that you know where the venue is before you set off. Whilst we will endeavour to make each event as safe as possible, you attend at your own risk.
