Join the West Midlands Branch at Trench Woods in Worcestershire, where you can take part in one OR two events today! It's completely up to you...

MOTH MORNING 9AM start: This is your chance to learn more about the amazing world of moths and to find out which species are in the area. Local expert Tony Simpson will be able to open up a moth trap from the night before and show you what moths are inside. Don't worry - they will be very sleepy and will even rest on your hand! The UK has 2500 species of moth and many are very colourful and are often mistaken for butterflies - what will you find?!

Breakfast will be provided, but please bring your own drinks! For more information on where to meet, please email Branch Chair, Peter Seal, or call him on: 01905 426398.
