Bug hunting and moth trapping on the Isle of Wight
What better way for you and your children to have fun on the Isle of Wight than with an enlightening day out hunting for bugs or trapping moths as the light fades.
Hunting for insects
Where and when
We run our bug hunts at various places and times. Why not keep an eye out for an event so you can come along and see what you can find?
On these special occasions, we’ll be setting up our moth trap the night before, so we can find out which creatures are flying in the night skies:
Mottistone Manor Open Days (Sun 27 & Mon 28 May, Mottistone Gardens)
Magnificent Meadows (Sat 7 July, Newtown National Nature Reserve, in support of National Meadows Day).
Things on the wing (Sat 28 & Sun 29 July, Newtown National Nature Reserve)
We also have a series of Butterfly Walks throughout the summer (1&17June, 30 July, 20 August, 2 September, Compton Downs).
