Cors Dyfi mothing event Saturday 18 July

Hello Moth-ers,

Our next mothing event is this Saturday (18 July) at the Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve. This site, on the far western side of the county has hosted an annual mothing event for the last ten years, during which time it has produced many new county records. Indeed, as Cors Dyfi is situated near the Dovey estuary it has the greatest potential to produce a good migrant species, only two years ago we caught the first Feathered Ranunculus recorded in the county and there are many more migrant species out there, still to be recorded.  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!

Full event details are:-

Venue: Cors Dyfi Nature reserve
Event Date: Saturday 18 July
Event Time: 8:30 onwards, at the reserve car park.
Directions: The reserve is found on the right-hand side, 4 miles south west of Machynlleth on the A487.
Grid Reference: SN704984.

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,

Peter.
