Local residents are encouraged to get involved in Wanstead’s 2024 moth-recording project.

“Although the number of moth species recorded on the Wanstead patch in 2023 was down on previous years, there were still many exciting finds, with 300 different species seen (plus 26 butterfly species). Please get in touch if you’d like to help with this year’s count,” said Wren Wildlife Group member Tim Harris.

Among last year’s finds was a Large Emerald, a first for this area, spotted near Wanstead Park’s Temple in June.
