With about 2,500 species in the UK, moths exhibit an extraordinary variety of form, colouration and lifestyle. This beginner-intermediate course will – quite literally – shine a light on this insect order and provide you with the confidence to take up moth-trapping yourself.

The course will involve a mixture of classroom learning, practical work involving setting up moth traps, and the identification of moths attracted to the traps.
