Moth Day magic

Well, our first ever Moth Day at St Nick’s went well. A packed venue and it even stopped raining long enough for us to be outdoors and go on a moth walk round the nature reserve!

Yorkshire Moth Man Dr Dave Chesmore’s morning session consisted of an introductory presentation about how to identify moths, followed by the opening up of the moth trap  set up the previous night at St Nick’s.

Then we set about trying to identify these moths, using the skills Dave had taught us …

After a moth walk round the nature reserve, the day ended with a Buzzing! Moth Show from me – with more moth photos and poems than ever before.  One lady who came along said it was ‘her special treat to herself’!

You can listen to the last poem in the show by clicking below:

Thank you to Ivana for all her organisational work setting the day up, to Dave Chesmore, and to everyone who came along.

Happy Moth Hunting!
