Welcome

My Blog's aim is to promote and encourage others to participate in the wonderful hobby that is Moth-trapping.
So why do we do it? well for some people it is to get an insight into the world of Moths, for others it is to build a list of species much like 'Twitching' in the Bird world.
The reason I do it....you never know what you might find when you open up that trap!
I hope to show what different species inhabit our Country by getting people aware of what is out there.
On this Blog you will find up-to-date records and pictures.
I run a trap regularly in my garden in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Essex

Please also check out the links in the sidebar to the right for other people's Blogs and informative Websites.

Thanks for looking & happy Mothing!

A walk through an Apple Orchard.

Burnet Companion









Spotted two new species today walking at work, a Burnet Companion and a Mother Shipton, both flittering in the sunshine from flower to flower, also 5 Nemophora degeerella dancing up and down, being the first yearly sightings of these superb longhorn micro moths, the males having the longest antennae of any species of British Moth.

ps. Excuse the crap picture it was taken with a camera phone just as it moved!
