Mothing and Rusland's Rare Butterflies Talk

Join Rusland Horizons at Hay Bridge Nature Reserve for our first butterfly and moth event of the year! The first part of the evening will be a talk about ‘how to start mothing’. A beginners guide to moth trapping with practical tips from a panel of experienced, local, moth enthusiasts. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and even borrow a moth trap to have a go a mothing yourself!

We then move on to ‘Rusland’s rare butterflies’. A short talk on where, when and how, to see the nationally rare and endangered species of butterflies that can be found in the Rusland valley.

With the huge amount of collective experience, and enthusiasm, relating to moths and butterflies from our presenters, you will be inspired to head out this summer in search of the Duke of Burgundy or High Brown Fritillary, and the many other beautiful moths and butterflies we are so lucky to have here in this stunning area.

The event will be a great opportunity to meet other local nature enthusiasts and learn about how you can get involved in butterfly and moth conservation in the Rusland area.

The event is free to attend but we ask that, if you are able, a donation is made on the night. This will be split between Rusland Horizons Trust to support its future activities, and Hay Bridge Nature Reserve for the generous use of their facilities.
