A brief summary of the work of the group.

Recording for the county data set which is also uploaded annually to the National Moth Recording Scheme database. Our field meetings often target specific species and locations to monitor populations. Fully illustrated species reports or summary species lists for sites are provided to the owning administrations to help with their site conservation work. We aim to help and encourage the interest and conservation of all Lepidoptera and for that purpose we hold seminars and workshops for identification and general discussion.
