Following the recent publication of the excellent new field guide by Sterling, Parsons and Lewington, interest in micro moths is on the increase. This new course is aimed at anyone familiar with macro moth species who would now like expert help with micro moths. It is aimed at total beginners as well as people with more advanced knowledge - whatever your skill level we hope to stretch you. It will help you recognize the defining features and identify moths to family level.

Moth traps will be set each night in a variety of habitats and the micro moths trapped will be identified during the day - there will be slide presentations and hand-outs as well as practical help from the tutor. Please note that this course finishes at lunchtime on Tuesday 22 July.

Dave Grundy is an experienced naturalist and wildlife consultant specialising in bird, butterfly and moth surveying. Since 2003 he has organised and administered the Garden Moth Scheme which now covers 300 gardens across Britain and Ireland.
