The Heart Moth is an intricately patterned species of moth associated with mature and veteran Oak trees, found on woodland edges and in Oak parkland.
Historically Heart Moth was recorded on numerous sites throughout the wooded areas of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire. Worryingly the number of sites with recent sightings is low.
We have good reason to be hopeful though, some local colonies have been recorded in recent years and there are some fantastic veteran oak trees throughout the region which, combined with sympathetic management, could still support colonies.
Can you help us find the lost Heart Moth colonies? Join our talk to learn about the ecology of the Heart Moth and how to help us find it.
