Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Woodbridge Wildlife Group are giving people the chance to learn more about the wonderful world of moths when the group hold a moth trap event in Fen Meadow, Woodbridge on August 28.

“This event has been organised in partnership with the Friends of Fen Meadow and we will be setting up the trap the previous evening,” said Phil Smith, chairman of the Woodbridge Wildlife Group.

“We will have a local expert joining us to help us identify the moths trapped, and I think that this will be a very interesting early morning event.  

"Visitors will find us at the top end of the park near the gate to the cemetery.”

Booking is not required for the Moth Trap event which begins at 8am. The event is free but donations to Suffolk Wildlife Trust are welcomed.
