Cambridgeshire And Essex: Discovering Moths

Saturday 29th August 2015, 2.00pm-10.30pm

This one-day course run by the Field Studies Council is aimed at anyone with an interest in moths, whether you are a beginner or are already moth-watching and want a little more 'methodology' and knowledge. It provides an introduction to moths; their identification, natural history and conservation. With around 800 species of larger moth in the UK there is plenty of variety from brightly coloured distinctive species to those that are smaller, browner and more challenging to identify!
