An Introduction to Moths and Moth Trapping (22/06/18) Friday, 22nd June 2018 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Some of the most amazing animals in Britain are flying at night but we rarely see them. This course gives you the opportunity to come face to face with the beautiful (and weird!) moths of Sussex and learn all about them.
The evening starts with a presentation that introduces you to the diversity of moth species that can be found in Sussex. Then we will open the previous night’s moth trap and study and identify what we have caught.
After these moths have been released we will set up two moth traps elsewhere on the reserve to give us the chance to observe the moths as they come to the light.
Throughout the evening you will be provided with information about the moths of Sussex, how to identify them and what books and equipment are required to start moth surveying at home.
No previous knowledge required. Classroom and field session.
