Moth Morning

Get up-close and personal with a wide variety of moth species as one of our rangers talks you through the regular moth surveying we do at Scotney and opens one of the moth traps to see what's inside.

  • Booking essential

Moths often lose out in the popularity stakes to their butterfly cousins but they are truly beautiful and intriguing in their own right. Join our ranger and expert moth volunteers for a behind-the scenes moth morning to view and learn about the moths found by the Old Castle. The morning finishes with a breakfast bacon or veggie sausage bap in the tea-room.
