This Saturday the MMG (Montgomeryshire Moth Group) is holding a public mothing event at Coed Pendugwm Nature Reserve, just south of Llanfyllin. This particular reserve has been very under-recorded in the past, but we are 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 an excellent evening’s mothing at this superb woodland site.
Full event details are:-
Venue: Coed Pendugwm Nature Reserve
Event Date: Saturday 9th April
Target Species: Early Spring species
Event Time: 7:30 onwards, at the reserve car park. (please note that the ‘meet time’ on the MMG website is incorrect)
Directions: from the A458 at Heniarth take the B4389 for approximately half a mile, then on the left take the B4382 for about a mile and a half, where you will turn right towards Pont Robert. Coed Pendugwm is on a minor road a mile north of Pontrobert towards Llanfihangel; follow the brown signs from Pontrobert. Park in the reserve car park down the short track opposite Pendugwm Farm.
Grid Reference: SJ103143.
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.
