Mothin' at Court Hey Park

Orange Sallow - Tiliacea citrago (Damian Young)

For a week or two we'd had superb moth conditions. Warm days followed by warm evenings, low wind and just the right amount of cloud!

So when the moth night arrived on Friday 9th September we had great expectations! As a public event hosted by the National Wildflower Centre we started slightly earlier than usual to give people an introduction. Giving time to set up and have a little chat with families and interested members of the public. Stylishly later several MBAN members also joined the fray with the welcome addition of the Lancashire Moth Groups Colin Daly.

Join us to see what we find in our moth traps!

Moth Night is a great opportunity to raise awareness about moths, so why not get family and friends to come along and find out why & how we trap them.

We'll be joind by our friends from the Merseyside Biobank.

Hugh Harris: NATIONAL TRUST COASTAL BIOBLITZ, Sat 20th and Sun 21st June 2015

The area at Formby Point managed by the National Trust has increased (520 acres) through a gift of the former tobacco waste areas by the British Nicotine Company, the purchase in 1985 of the Larkhill Lane heathland area from Ideal Homes Ltd and the recent purchase of the former agricultural area north of Wicks Lane. This area is heavily used for recreation and accessed via the large Victoria Road carpark. Here the frontal sand dunes are being rapidly cut back by the sea and prehistoric footprints can sometimes be found on the beach.
