|Ruby Tiger - One of the Moth Might target species.|
National Moth Night takes place this year from 8th - 10th August. This is where mothing sessions are arranged for anyone who has an interest to attend, to see how its done and basically meet a few moths. Its ideal for anyone hoping to get into moths to ask a few questions and for local residents who may have seen the bright glow from our house to see what its all about...
So, I'm am inviting Alnwick Wildlife Group members and Howick Estate Residents to attend a couple of open sessions at -
Howick Village Hall, Howick Village, just down from Howick Hall....
Saturday night 10th August 2013 from 9pm until midnight.
Meet at the Village Hall 9pm sharp. The traps will be in operation, and weather permitting there should be some moths attracted, and maybe some bats too.
Sunday morning 11th August 2013 from 8.30am until 10.30am
Come and see the traps emptied, the catch recorded and (hopefully) identified. There should be some opportunity to get some photos of the catch if you wish.
Feel free to come to one or both. There will be tea and coffee available with biscuits ( maybe a cake?). As we will be using the Village Hall electrics, donations of £1 per head would be gratefully received.
All guests should bring a torch, and suitable clothing for outdoors, Children must be accompanied by an adult, sorry no pets.
In the event that the weather forecast is for torrential rain ( drizzle is ok) or blowing a gale ( a light breeze is ok) please contact me.
