Avon Wildlife Trust: Introduction to British Moths


12 August 2017 12:00 - 13 August 2017 12:00

Location: 158 Frenchay Park Rd, Bristol BS16 1HB, UK.

Event description

Most people are familiar with the dozen or so species of common butterflies that feed in our gardens, but how many of us are aware that the average suburban garden plays host to more than four hundred species of moths? With more than two thousand five hundred species present in Britain, moths greatly out number butterflies and can be found in every habitat. Moths can be found throughout the year, can be extremely colourful, as small as a pin head and as large as a mouse.

This course will appeal to anyone wishing to know more about moths and how to encounter these beautiful and fascinating insects. We aim to spend time looking for moths using various techniques at times during the day and trapping using various methods in the evening/night. These activities are all weather dependant.
