Goat Moth

As I had previously posted, we did a night time moth event at St Helens Wood in order to catch some moths to display for the Summer Fayre. We had a fabulous night with 117 species, and probably could have increased that if we had had time to catch and review every micro moth.  What we did have, and I never thought I would personally see, was the Goat Moth (Cossus cossus) at the MV trap. I can now lay down my jealousy I carried at Alan Parker's record from the HCPNR from 2015.

Update to say it was actually 2012 when Alan had the Goat Moth in HCPNR, even longer to carry that Jealousy!


Moth Night & Summer Fayre

We will be having a night time moth event at St Helens Wood near the BBQ area this Friday 5th July. We will meet up around 20:45. We will set up traps and see what night time wonders we can find to present to the public the following day when there will be a Summer Fayre at St Helens Wood in the same area. It opens around 2pm on Saturday. All are welcome to come along on either night/day and see what all the fuss is about.
