Summer 2008

David Gardner, Kent’s leading moth expert (Kent moths.org) kindly came to carry out a moth survey of the woods in June. This was an all night recording and was attended by about fifty people who camped the night out in the woods.

Barbecue and breakfast were provided and a massive 102 species were recorded. This was a really fascinating experience and will be repeated at different times of the year.

David Gardner has updated the Lepidoptera species list for Gorsehill Wood to include species recorded on the 2009 autumn moth survey. The updated lepidoptera species list brings the number of species up to 209 and includes five notable species.
