The myriad moths of Leighton Moss nature reserve will be on show at a Meet The Moths at the Moss day tomorrow.

The RSPB reserve, at Myers Farm, on Storrs Lane, Silverdale, is a great habitat for these creatures, with more than 500 species already recorded there and new ones found every year.

From 10am to 11am, moths found overnight on the reserve will be on show for those who want to learn more about these fascinating insects.

Either bring your own book on moths or use the ones provided to test your identification skills with the help of the experts – or just enjoy the marvellous variety of colours and shapes.

Entry is £5 for adults, £3 for concessions, £1 for children or £10 for a family ticket. Entry is free to RSPB members.
