Come to the first ever Moth Day at St Nick’s on 27 August!

Do you know what these caterpillars are? Do you know what they are eating? Do you know what they will turn into? Well, you will at the end of the first ever Moth Day at St Nicholas Fields in York, on Saturday 27 August!

Everything you always wanted to know about moths – and then some … That’s what’s in store at our marvellous Moth Day!

The day will be run by Yorkshire Moth Man Dr Dave Chesmore, and topped off with a Buzzing! Moth Show from me. My show will have more moth photos and moth poems than ever before!

You’ll find out from Dave Chesmore all about the different types of moth in Britain, how they are classified, where to find them, how to ID them, and much much more.

If you’ve been to one of our Buzzing! Moth Nights, you’ll have an inkling of the amazing variety of moths there are in York – like the Pale tussock below, that we saw at our Buzzing! Moth Night in May. The Buzzing! Moth Day at St Nick’s is your chance to find out lots more about these amazing creatures.

There will be night-flying moths on display, caught by Dave the previous night, and we’ll go on a hunt for day-flying moths round the fabulous nature reserve at St Nick’s.

Come for the whole mind-expanding day (for adults and children aged 12 up), or just come along at 2.30pm for my Buzzing! Moth Show (for adults and children aged 6 up).
