Moths have a reputation for being dull brown insects that fly at night and eat clothes whereas butterflies are beautiful, fly by day and do no harm. However, the truth is very different: only a handful of moths are responsible for damaged clothes, there are many more day-flying moths than butterflies and many moths match the best of the butterflies for beauty. Naturalist, Bob Smith, talks about some of the 500+ species recorded in his garden and includes photos and videos illustrating the range of sizes, shapes and colours, some of their lifecycles and the origins of some of their names. No booking necessary, just come along.
