Public mothing event at Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve on Saturday 24th June



Hello Moth-ers,

This Saturday the MMG (Montgomeryshire Moth Group) is holding a public mothing event at Coed Y Dinas Nature Reserve, situated just south of Welshpool, in the east of the county. This excellent site has proved to be very productive over the past few years, so we are hoping to add more moth species to the site records. So please come along and join us for what promises to be a terrific evening’s mothing at this superb water and wooded nature reserve.
Full event details are:-

Venue: Coed Y Dinas
Event Date: Saturday 24th June
Meet Time: 9:00pm onwards. Park in reserve car park.
Directions: From Welshpool head south on the A490 for about a mile and a half and the reserve entrance is just before the roundabout on the left.
Grid Reference: SJ220051

Montgomeryshire Moth Group (MMG) is an independent voluntary group of people interested in moths. All ages are welcome to attend events whether experts or beginners.
This year all the events are light trapping events. We set up the light traps at dusk to attract moths and then release them after identification.
As with all our evening events, please bring a torch and wear suitable outdoor clothing.

You are welcome to join us for as much of the evening that suits you, we are likely to stay for several hours. However, in case of cancellation, due to poor weather or unforeseen circumstances, always ring or e-mail to check the event is on before joining us.



Peter.
