The Joys of Moth-ing
Moth Night is the annual celebration of moths and moth recording. It is organised by Atropos, Butterfly Conservation and the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. The arrival of Moth Night every year (this year from 27 – 29 August) serves as a timely reminder of the joy to be had in moth-ing and also of just how easy it can be to study these amazing creatures. The great appeal of moth recording is that you don’t have to go anywhere in particular to find numerous species. An average garden can be home to a couple of hundred species.
