MOTH NIGHT 2020

 

This website is for entering your mothnight sightings.  For the main Moth Night website please go here.

Organised by Atropos, Butterfly Conservation and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Moth Night is the annual celebration of moth recording throughout Britain and Ireland by moth recording enthusiasts with local public events aimed at raising awareness of moths among the general public.

Atropos originally founded Moth Night in 1998.  Atropos is the UK journal for butterfly, moth and dragonfly enthusiasts. It is published three times a year, with an annual Migration Review. This website is a resource for visitors to find out about latest sightings, how to get involved in recording in their local area and to share information with other enthusiasts. If you would like to subscribe to the journal you can do so by clicking here.  AtroposBooks offer a wide range of books on butterflies, moths, dragonflies and other invertebrates.

Butterfly Conservation are the UK's leading charity devoted to the conservation of butterflies and moths, and their habitats.  They run the National Moth Recording Scheme.

The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology is a world-class research organisation focusing on land and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere.  They manage a range of long-term environmental monitoring sites and networks across the UK.


Participants are not required to comply with the theme and are encouraged to do their own thing.

In association with the Biological Records Centre at the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, we have designed an easy-to-use Indicia-based online recording system available from the first day of the event until the deadline for data entry.
