Upper Thames: Meet The Moths
Saturday 12th August 2017, 10.00am-0.00pm
College Lake, Bucks

College Lake is BBOWT’s flagship reserve in Bucks. It has calcareous grassland, fields managed for rare arable weeds, wetland habitats and woodland margins.

This event is in support of National Moth Night. We welcome beginners to moth trapping, families and interested members of the public to meet us to examine moths trapped the previous night. We will have some interesting moths captured the previous night in other traps on display and two traps will be opened to demonstrate use of moth traps and give access to the moths they hold so that people can have a go at identifying them. BC will provide identification sheets so that people can have a go at identifying the moths on display (and then get your id confirmed by experts).
