North Lancashire Wildlife Group

(formerly North Lancashire Naturalists' Group)

In the garden area at the back of RSPB Leighton Moss visitor centre is a large patch of Verbena bonariensis. On 21 September, 2023 a Humming-bird Hawk-moth spent well over 5 minutes entertaining us, oblivious of our proximity.

Wildlife in North Lancashire The 2024 issue of NLWG's annual publication is now available. With 64 pages of reports and articles and over 250 photographs it is a celebration of wildlife in North Lancashire and the surrounding area. Wildlife in North Lancashire 2024 is £5.00 and although P&P is nearly £3 now, we are keeping the P&P charge to half of that (the total cost including P&P is £6.50 for 1 and an extra £5.00 for each additional one sent in the same parcel to the same address and so combining postage, i.e. £11.50 for 2, £16.50 for 3, etc.). For details of payment and to provide delivery address please contact the editor, Rob, at
