National Insect Week returns in 2020

Moth Night at Morningside Farm

Friday, June 15, 2018 - 21:00 to 23:45

An opportunity to view some of the moths found on this site. This will all be new discoveries as we have never explored the site after dark before.

We use a series of lights that attract the moths and then collect them and pass them around in clear cases before releasing back into the wild.

Please wear old clothes, bring a torch and a chair.
