Moths are varied, fascinating and beautiful creatures as well as being useful pollinating insects. Which is why every year since 1999 there has been a National Moth Night to encourage public interest in moths.

After a break of a few years, there is again going to be a moth night event on Bute, organised jointly by the Buteshire Natural History Society and Bute Forest.

At the Bute Forest work area on Saturday, July 5, starting at 9.30am, a number of moth traps will be opened which will have been operating overnight. It is anticipated that visitors will be able to look at a variety of moths before they are released.

If you would like help with transport to the Forest, please leave your name and a contact phone number at Bute Museum in Stuart Street before 2pm.
