93 days to go to National Insect Week

Moths At Catfield Fen

Saturday, July 2, 2016 - 10:00

Trap opening 10.00am


As last year we are running an open morning for members at Catfield Fen concentrating on some of the special moths which occur there.  We will be putting out traps the night before and will, weather permitting, hope to attract species such as Oblique Carpet, Flame Wainscot Reed Leopard and Gold Spot as well as good numbers of other moths which occur in this pristine habitat. Unaccompanied access is only possible along the Rond on the western and southern boundary of the Reserve.  No boat trips are being arranged this time but visitors will be free to wander along the Rond afterwards, looking for dragonflies or even a late Swallowtail.  Wellies recommended. You might also find insect repellent useful.  Sorry no dogs.


Parking by kind permission of Dr and Mrs S Holburn at TG369215.  Postcode NR29 5DD.

Cramp-ball weevils look like bird poo, moths pretend to be lichen, caterpillars disguise as twigs with last year’s bud scars…
