Moths at Yew Tree Farm

June 11 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Yew Tree Farm,
Thrupp Lane
Stroud, GL5 2EF United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Yew Tree Farm has an 'unimproved' field, which simply means it has never been ploughed or fertilised and is therefore a rare and precious part of our countryside, it has also been designated a Key Wildlife Site. A short survey last summer revealed a good range of butterflies, day-flying moths, other insects and wild flowers in the field. We confidently expect the traps set overnight to contain an amazing selection of moths, including large hawkmoths.
