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 here in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

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!

Herts Recent Notables and Rarities Reported

Friday, 13 November 2009


Well I thought as it as my Birthday yesterday i'd try trapping.

Last night 2 Macros (Feathered Thorn & Red-line Quaker) both very worn, it has hardly stopped raining the last few days here and to top it all off my bulb blew last night so a nice new bulb will be on its way soon.
At least there's been less sorting of Moths and more sorting records, websites etc so its not all bad!

I seem to be taking pictures of other things now, luckily this Western Conifer Seed Bug got me snapping away again, what a beautiful pest!
