Moths are a major part of our biodiversity and play vital roles in the ecosystem, affecting many other types of wildlife.  Both adult moths and their caterpillars are food for a wide variety of wildlife.  Night-flying adult moths form a major part of the diet of bats and caterpillars are especially important to birds for feeding the young.  Some of Britain’s favourite garden birds rely on caterpillars to rear their nestlings, with our blue tit chicks alone needing an estimated 35 billion a year!   Moths are also a useful indicator about the general health of the environment as they are so sensitive to changes.

You are invited to join members of the Warwickshire Moth Group at a social evening by kind permission of Jon and Sally Slee.  You will firstly watch a short presentation that gives information on the many faces of moths, showing them in a cuddly and sometimes more eerie light, before we walk around the farm to view some specimens that have been caught in moth traps.  Group members will identify the moths and explain all about their life cycle and importance to our ecosystem.  Jon and Sally will be kindly providing a barbeque during the evening.

Places at this free event are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please book early.
