Moths & Muffins Morning

Wild Northumbrian

A kaleidoscope of colour awaits!

Discover the enchantment of the night on a Moths & Muffins Morning, hosted at Wild Northumbrian, Tarset. This rural glamping 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 beautiful, private Swallow Hut, Wild Intrigue will introduce you to the beauty and importance of these misunderstood creatures. Intriguing discussions and insights into moths live-caught will be enjoyed, over a tasty brekkie of locally sourced muffins and bottomless hot drinks, of course.

kaleidoscope of colour awaits! As Wild Intrigue go through the traps to identify and record the species caught, trying not to get overly excited in the process, you will have the opportunity for some incredible photographs of these much under-rated invertebrates.

Moth trapping is vital 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.
