National Moth Night was launched in 1999 and takes place annually.
On the night, events are held where numbers and species are recorded,
the results of which are collated into a nationwide survey. This
annual survey has generated much important information, including
new sites for scarce species and records of rare immigrants.
In 2004, the emphasis was tweaked to include day flying moths.
There's alot more to moths than the bathroom wall or your wardrobe!
This selection of common moths proves some are at least as colourful
as butterflies, and many fly during the day visiting the same
nectar sources as butterflies in your garden.
