Fri 27th September: Meeth Quarry Devon Wildlife Trust, Moth event 7pm

Meet at the reserve car park at SS 539 084 for a 7pm til late moth recording event on this years' National Moth Night. The lane leading to the reserve is off the A386 on the left just as you enter the village of Meeth from the south, marked by a DWT signboard.

The target species is Clifden Nonpareil, a stunning moth that has colonised Devon recently as part of a natural range extension. Its caterpillars feed on poplars including aspen, and there are a good number of these trees right next to the car park.

Please check Devon Moth Group website , or ring/email Rob Wolton before coming, to check that the date has not been moved to the day before or after due to weather.

Leader Rob Wolton robertwolton@yahoo.co.uk tel. 01837 810416.

In association with Devon Moth Group and Devon Biodiversity Records Centre.
