Fri 8th May: Norman Lockyer Observatory, Sidmouth

Meet at 20.00 hrs on Friday or 10.00hrs on Saturday 9th at Grid ref SY 139 883.

A moth recording event at the remarkable Observatory with an inspection of the catch on the Saturday morning at 10.00. The observatory is on high ground in an area of minimal light pollution and surrounded by mixed woodland about 1km from the coast so should produce an interesting suite of species. There is an option to camp overnight and toilets are available on site. Joint with Norman Lockyer Observatory and Devon Moth Group.

Best approached off the A3052 having crossed the river Sid in Sidford and turning right past the pub. As you go towards Sidmouth town on this road there is a brown sign to the Observatory on the left just before the road crosses the river once more. The Observatory is at the top of the hill on the left.
