92 days to go to National Insect Week

'Meet the Moths at the Moss', RSPB Leighton Moss

Saturday, June 11, 2016 - 11:00 to 23:45

Leighton Moss is a terrific home for moths with almost 600 different species recorded and new ones found each year. Moths found overnight on the reserve and nearby will be on view for those who want to learn more about these fascinating insects. The moth trap will be opened at 11 am and will include a short introductory talk. Test out your identification skills with the help of the experts on hand or simply marvel at the variety of shapes, colours and sizes.

This event is part of the National Moth Nights programme recording all moths located overnight from 9-12 June as well as in the day (see for information). Bring along photos of any moths you may have found in your garden or home during the moth nights dates, for help with identification and to contribute to the records. Normal admission charges apply to non-members visiting the reserve, no additional charges for event. Donations welcome.
