Moths Seen

Moth Nights have been held at Maple Lodge since 1983. To-date nearly 270 different species of Macro moth and over 170 different species of Micro moth have been recorded on the reserve. During a moth night, a light source is placed on a white plastic sheet on the ground in an appropriate clearing near a variety of hedges, bushes, plants and trees. The moths are attracted to the light and as they flutter around it or settle onto the sheet, they are caught in a clear plastic container by a participant of the moth evening. We then take them back to the Clubhouse where they are identified (with the aid of a number of books and occasionally a moth expert) before being recorded and released. Additionally we now (2008 onwards) use moth traps put out overnight and emptied early the following morning.
