The Brecknock Moth Group is an informal group of friends who share an interest in recording moths in and around Brecknock.  We started out in 2001 and there are now over 30 people on the email contact list.

The Group works in partnership with a number of organisations. In particular it works with BIS (Biodiversity Information Service), who hold all of the records of moths in Powys and the Brecon Beacons National Park and who have built and maintain this website. It has very close links with the Brecknock Wildlife Trust, who have for several years overseen a moth survey contract that has contributed much-needed funds for moth books and equipment. The Group also works with Butterfly Conservation who have collated its records into its own database, the National Moth Recording Scheme.

Norman Lowe is the Recorder for the Watsonian Vice County VC42 Breconshire and has collated and verified over 200,000 moth records, all of which can be found on this website.
