NATURE lovers are being asked to check the woods for lobsters in a bid to help conservationists monitor moth distribution.
The Lobster moth, whose caterpillar bears an uncanny resemblance to the crustacean, is just one of hundreds of weird and wonderful moth species found in woodland.
Moth Night 2014 runs from July 3-5 and will include a series of day-time searches and night-time trapping events – including one at Arnside Knott tonight (Thursday).
