There were several prizes to be won by participating in Moth Night in 2021!


We were very fortunate in securing some excellent prizes for Moth Night 2021:

Random draw for 10 participants who submit data.  Five individual recorders and five event organisers were selected at random for this prize sponsored by Bloomsbury Publishing have donated three copies of Field Guide to Caterpillars, two copies of British & Irish Moths a Photographic Guide (3rd edition) and five copies of Concise Guide to the Moths of Great Britain & Ireland (2nd edition)

Best record of a migrant moth species. £50 credit to be spent with Atropos Books. Details of the record must be posted on the Flight Arrivals news page the next day and a photograph provided.

For 2021 we introduced some new categories for prizes:

  • The recorder who records the  highest number of macro-species from a reedbed / wetland site (as a percentage of the county total) will receive a 40w Rigid Trap donated by Watkins and Doncaster.
  • The recorder who records the highest number of macro-species from a non-reedbed / wetland site (as a percentage of the county total). This category has been sponsored by Celestron who have donated an Elements Thermotorch as a prize.
  • The recorder who records the highest number of macro-moth species trapped in a garden trap (as a percentage of county total). Richard Lewington has donated a 12" x 10" signed print of a Buff-tip as the prize for this category.
  • Photographic Competition.  We will be looking for photographs of moths trapped or which capture the spirit of Moth Night.  The winner will receive an Opticron Gallery Scope donated by Opticon.

We would like to extend our thanks to all of the above for supplying prizes for Moth Night.

Prizes for Moth Night 2022 will be announced once finalised.
