Below are the details of MMG’s (Montgomeryshire Moth Group) forthcoming mothing event which is this coming Saturday, 10 August at Llanymynech Rocks. The event is being jointly hosted by the MMG and Shropshire Wildlife Trust. We have a target species for this event - the Mouse Moth a species which has eluded us for many years, so we’re hopeful of trapping it this time.

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.
All the best,
