This Saturday the MMG (Montgomeryshire Moth Group) is holding its first mothing event of 2016 at Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve, just south of Welshpool. This is the first time we will have trapped at this site, so early in the season and we’re hoping for all those early spring species to turn up and perhaps one or two more unusual species, who knows! So please come along and join us for what promises to be a terrific evening’s mothing at this superb wetland site.
Full event details are:-
Venue: Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve
Event Date: Saturday 19th March
Target Species: Early Spring species
Event Time: 6:00 onwards, park at the reserve car park.
Directions: Welshpool head south on the A490 for about a mile and a half and the reserve entrance is just before the roundabout on the left.
Grid Reference: SJ220051.
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.
