Our next mothing event is this Saturday (I st July) at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). This site is on the far western side of the county, and the ‘heathy’ area we’re actually trapping (which is above the old abandoned quarry) has never been trapped before, so it may well throw up a few surprises, you never know. So, 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 who knows what might turn up!

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,
