Discover the enchantment of the night on a Moths & Muffins Morning, hosted at Wild Northumbrian, Tarset.
This rural site is managed with wildlife at its heart, and supports a rich mosaic of habitats that attract magical moth species such as the Burnished Brass, Elephant Hawkmoth, Peach Blossom, and Garden Tiger.
Based from the Swallow Hut, Wild Intrigue will introduce you to the spectacular beauty and importance of these misunderstood creatures. Intriguing discussions and insights into live-caught moths will be enjoyed, over a tasty brekkie of locally sourced muffins and bottomless fresh coffee and orange juice.
A kaleidoscope of colour awaits! You will have the opportunity to go through the moth traps, set the night before, with Wild Intrigue as they identify the species captured. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to take incredible photographs of these much under-rated invertebrates, showing the impressive camouflage and vibrancy of different species.
Moth trapping is vital for conservation as moths play an important role as nocturnal pollinators, and are an indicator of changes in the climate and habitats. Once captured and recorded all moths will be safely released back to the wild.
Suitable for adults as well as families with children. Under 18s must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult.
