Our next mothing event is this Saturday (27June) at the Roundton Nature Reserve. This site on the far eastern side of the county has produced some very interesting records over the years, one which comes to mind was a Humming-bird hawk-moth larva recorded just last year and I’m sure the site offers plenty of scope for further good records at this event. On this occasion we will be joined by both MWT staff (who will be telling us all about bat species at this site) and I also welcome members of the Montgomeryshire bat group who will be giving us their take on the bat work that they do. If you’ve never been to one of these events before, treat yourself, please come along and join us, for a great night’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.
All the best,
