Moths & Muffins Morning

Wild Northumbrian

A kaleidoscope of colour awaits!

Discover the enchantment of the night by joining one of our Moths and Muffins Mornings, at Wild Northumbrian, Tarset. This rural glamping site is managed with wildlife at its core, providing a rich mosaic of habitats that attract magical moth species such as the Burnished Brass, Elephant Hawkmoth, Peach Blossom, and Garden Tiger.

Based at the Swallow Hut, Wild Intrigue guides Heather and Cain will introduce you to the beauty and intrigue of these misunderstood creatures. Enjoy a short talk accompanied by unlimited hot drinks and a delicious, locally made muffin, before we had out to collect the moth traps

kaleidoscope of colour awaits! We will discover, identify and record the species present, giving you the opportunity for some incredible photographs

 Moth trapping is extremely important for conservation. Moths have an important role in our ecosystems and are an indicator of changes in the climate and habitats. Once captured and recorded all the moths are safely released back to the wild.

A percentage of every ticket will be donated to Butterfly Conservation, to support their work #MothsMatter.

  • Adults £15 
  • Under 18’s £12 (must be accompanied by a paying adult)

The Adventure

What better way to start your morning than a hot coffee, delicious muffin and.. a bucket load of moths! Some of our most misunderstood creatures, moths are more diverse, a little more intriguing, and - in our opinion - even more beautiful than their favoured cousins, butterflies.

On this Mini Exped you will join Wild Intrigue to discover the kaleidoscope of iridescent, glimmering and vibrant colour that awaits as we empty the prior night’s moth traps. This is a perfect opportunity for macro photography, or to simply discover the hidden world of our night time pollinators.
