National Insect Week returns in 2020

Moth Morning at RSPB Newport Wetlands

Sunday, June 17, 2018 - 09:00 to 11:00

Come along and find out more the mysteries of the moth and how they got such weird and wonderful names.

We will open up our moth traps that have been set in different parts of the reserve and record what we have found.

There are groups of moths called carpets, kittens, pugs, tigers, hawks, footmen, quakers, daggers and darts. These describe some of the common characteristic of each group, such as the intricate patterns of the carpets or the plain appearance of the quakers.

We invite you to come along and celebrate the diversity of our wonderful reserve and the wildlife we find here.
