Cambridge Wild Weekend at Nightingale Garden

Buff tip moth, pretending to be a twig - but we knew better (I almost trod on it when it was just on the grass near the moth trap first thing in the morning)

Phew - three events out of seven were in the garden. All lovely. Still recovering from the experience and moving things from A to B.

We have lots of photos to sort through still - watch this space.


Elephant moth 'making a break for freedom' - all the moths were released as soon as they were recorded and had warmed up a bit.

But we do have a checked list of moths and species recorded, back from Guy Belcher, which I thought I'd get up quickly here as a PDF. It will go into the official records soon.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered or just came along to take part, especially Guy and his boys, Margaret-the-wonderful craft person, Jenny for some top cake, Queen Edith's Community Forum for insurance and other support, Co-op Marque for donating delicious fruit, food and drinks.


25 July: it was good to spot one of the ladybird/lacewing houses made on the Sunday afternoon at our local allotment site.
