Butterflies & Moths
Over sixty butterflies and moths are shown in their natural habitats – predominately the Sussex Downs and Surrey Hills plus what flies into my house on hot summer evenings when the windows are open and lights on. Neighbours are hopefully used to me taking flash photographs from outside into my kitchen when a night flying moth lands on the window.
For rare butterflies like the Duke of Burgundy, the Pearl-bordered fritillary and others I’m immensely grateful to Butterfly Conservation Sussex branch. Their volunteers’ work in conservation and identifying species has made this talk both possible and greatly improved.
