This Saturday the MMG (Montgomeryshire Moth Group) is holding a mothing event at Coed Pendugwm Nature Reserve in the centre/north of the county. This is a joint event with Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust who are doing bat recording. This site is very under-recorded so there is a chance that we might record something new or scarce for the site or indeed the county, so please come along and join us for what promises to be an excellent evening’s mothing and bat recording.

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.
As with all our evening events, please bring a torch and wear suitable outdoor clothing.
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 note that some sites are not easy to find, so please make sure you know where the venue is before you set off.
