‘Mothing and bat event’ at Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve

Hello Moth-ers,

This Saturday the MMG (Montgomeryshire Moth Group) and the MWT are holding a joint ‘mothing and bat event’ at Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve, just south of Welshpool. This event completes the MMG’s events calendar for 2015 and we are targeting autumn migrant species, along with the resident species of the Large Wainscot. Hopefully, the current dry conditions will prevail and some light southerly winds wouldn’t go amiss, which would push the migrant species towards us. This is your last chance to come to an event this season, 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 3rd October
Target Species: Migrant species & the Large Wainscot
Event Time: 6:30 onwards, at the reserve car park.
Directions: From 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                                                                                                       

All the best,

Peter.


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.
