Moth trapping: Borough Fen Duck Decoy, near Peterborough, CAMBRIDGESHIRE

25th July 2017

Leader: Paul Waring

The location is modern CAMBRIDGESHIRE, but vice-county NORTHAMPTONSHIRE.

Contact the leader at least a week in advance to register interest and for full details.

This privately-owned site is a small remnant of the once extensive Borough Fen. The decoy has been in operation for many centuries. It is one of very few now operating.

Habitats include lake margins, reedbeds, carr and mature woodland.

This meeting is primarily a light-trapping event for moths but we will be beating for caterpillars and other invertebrate after dark.

This is a joint meeting with the Peterborough Biological Recording Group.

For background information on this site and for the first of several reports of the previous BENHS meetings on this site see BJENH 26: 55-58, 173-174 and 176-177.
