Join us and learn a little more about the fantastic world of moths
Moths are sensitive indicators of the health of the natural environment and a vital part of the food chain; something which didn’t escape the attention of Gilbert White as early as the 18th Century.
We are having a series of moth nights (and mornings) this year one a month during the most active part of the mothing season (except for August when we take a break), each night will see a different variety of moths as we see the seasons change. Join us on this fantastic journey into the night time world of moths.
As well as helping to identify any moths that are seen, during the night sessions there will be an opportunity to experience other nocturnal life in the grounds especially looking out, or listening, for owls and bats.
This event will include outdoor activity including a short walk so please come dressed appropriately for the weather and time of year with sturdy footwear and bring a torch. A warm drink and biscuits will be provided during the evening’s activities and a light breakfast snack will be available for the morning sessions.
£6 per session –hot drinks and snacks provided
