If you get stuck with an identification iSpot is here to help! Use the tag #NMN13 to group together the Moth Night observations.

But have a go at identifying them yourself as well, using sites such as UK moths and Moths Count.

Some local moth groups have websites that allow you to check "What's Flying Tonight", such as this Norfolk Moth Group example - a great way of seeing what species are most likely on any particular date.

Tiger moths are one of the targets for Moth Night 2013 website, and there is a superb tiger moth ID guide (illustrated by Richard Lewington) available from:
