Marvellous Moth Morning – An Introduction to Moths with Breakfast Bap
Discover the moths that make their home at RSPB Arne, then indulge in a delicious breakfast bap & hot drink, followed by a short wander around Arne nature reserve.
Join us to discover what has been attracted to the moth traps overnight and help us identify Arne’s marvellous moths. Hopefully we’ll discover some masters of camouflage, like buff tips, smart-looking footman, a few stunningly beautiful moths, such as light emeralds and maybe a few huge hawkmoths.
Included in the experience is a delicious breakfast bap (bacon, egg or sausage/veggie sausage) and a tea, filter coffee or juice carton. Followed by a short guided walk around Coombe Heath, exploring the habitats and plants important for our moths.
The traps we use are humane light traps that attract moths. We will release all the moths once we’ve identified them.
