This course on late summer Butterflies and Moths is held at Preston Montford Field Centre close to the banks of the River Severn where a good range of marginal wetland and river valley species of moths may be observed. There will be daytime visits to a variety of habitats to observe late summer butterflies. The course will cover aspects of butterfly and moth identification, trapping and information on the national notable species and life histories, and suggest methods to encourage these fascinating insects and their close relatives into our gardens.
