Moths and their role in our life

Date: 16th May 2020
Start Time: 11:00 am
End Time: 3:00 pm

David Brown will be at the Yard talking about moths and showing the wide variety that live in our area. 

Moths and their caterpillars are important food items for many other species, including amphibians, small mammals, bats and many bird species. Moth caterpillars are especially important for feeding young chicks, including those of most familiar garden birds such as the blue tit and great tit, robin, wren and blackbird. A serious decline in moth numbers could have disastrous knock-on effects for all these wildlife species.

Guided tours, the mouse trail, films and refreshments in the café along with gifts / souvenirs will also be available.
