Slaley, Healey & Hexhamshire

Community Moth Project

Despite a very cold spring and what seems like continuous rain we do have some moth records! The moth trap has been loaned out 10 times, with over 98 moths caught and released and 37 species recorded. Hopefully now that the weather is getting warmer, we will have more moths flying and we can increase the species list.

So far, the winners are Hebrew Characters 23 recorded, Clouded drab 15, Early Grey 13, with Poplar Hawkmoth, Common Quaker and Brown Silver line coming in fourth with 7.

If you would like to borrow the moth trap over the summer, please contact Anne Porter for availability,

At the end of the year the full species list and numbers of moths recorded will be published, and the results will be sent to the North East Environmental Records Information Centre (ERIC).
