Harehope Quarry Project
Join the North Pennines AONB Partnerships’s Cold-blooded and Spineless project to discover the diverse colours and forms found within the moth world. We will be enjoying an evening and morning moth trapping session with national moth expert, Dave Grundy, at Harehope Quarry, a site boasting a wide variety of moths thanks to a broad range of habitats and trees. We can hope to see species such as the Autumnal Rustic, Dusky Thorn and the localised Haworth’s Minor.
This event is suitable for both beginners and more experienced moth trappers.
The event starts on Friday evening at 7.30pm. The length of time spent with the traps in the evening will depend on the volume of moths and weather.
The moth identification session on Saturday morning will begin at 9.30am. The length of time we spend identifying the moths will depend on the numbers caught, but we roughly estimate a session length of 2-3 hours.
The event is free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited.
