Below are the details of our forthcoming mothing event which is this Saturday at Tyddyn Dauddwr, nr. Arddleen, the event is very kindly being hosted by Rod Aspinwall. This rural site has not had much moth recording done on it before so there is much potential for one or two good species to come to the traps, so please come along and support us if you can.

Montgomeryshire Moth Group (MMG) is an independent voluntary group of people interested in moths. All ages are welcome to attend events whether experts or beginners.
This year all the events are light trapping events. We set up the light traps at dusk to attract moths and then release them after identification.
You are welcome to join us for as much of the evening that suits you, we are likely to stay for several hours. However, in case of cancellation, due to poor weather or unforeseen circumstances, always ring or e-mail to check the event is on before joining us. Please bring a touch and suitable clothing.
Please note that some sites are not easy to find, so please make sure you know where the venue is before you set off.
