Tiptree Heath

Mothing Session at Tiptree Heath - Dougal Urquhart

Tiptree Heath is a small fragment of what was once a much larger area of heathland that stretched from Maldon to Messing. For such a small area it holds a wealth of wildlife. Moth trapping here in the past has always been very productive with a number of scarce and attractive species being caught.
