Saving England's most threatened species from extinction

In search of the Barberry Carpet Moth

Location –  Stourpaine in N Dorset

Date – 22nd May.

Time – 8:30 - midnight.

We will be setting up a couple of mercury vapour light traps on the woodland edges and spend the evening seeing what we can find! We hope to trap Barberry Carpet Moth but if the weather conditions are good for moths we should attract many species to the traps and will try and ID them.

If the weather forecast is bad the event will be rearranged. Torches and insect repellent are a must - it's not only moths that are attracted to light!

Spaces limited so book your place with Fiona and she will send out further details - fhaynes@butterfly-conservation.org
