Moths Count holds regular national conferences for moth recorders in the UK. These meetings provide a great opportunity to hear about progress with the project and the National Moth Recording Scheme, meet fellow recorders and share moth recording experiences.
UK Moth Recorders' Meeting
Saturday 28 January 2017
Birmingham and Midland Institute, central Birmingham
Our seventh UK Moth Recorders’ meeting was held on 28 January 2017. As always it was a great day and everyone enjoyed themselves and the presentations. We heard an update on the National Moth Recording Scheme; an account on the intrepid adventures of two micro-moth recorders; developments in moth taxonomy and cryptic species; moths in bird's nests; the status of the Dark-Bordered Beauty in England; using stable isotopes to track insect migration and how hedgerow mangement can benefit moths. In addition to this Michael McCarthy gave an emotive presentation based on his book The Moth Snowstorm. Thank you to everyone who attended this event and contributed to it's success.
Plans are being made for next year's UK Moth Recorders' Meeting with a provisional date set for Saturday 27 January 2018. Further details will be available in due course.
