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!

Moth Migration

Only last year was it known that Butterflies and Moths migrate just like Birds

We all know that we get an influx of migrants yearly from the continent, Butterflies such as the Painted Lady, Red Admiral and Moths such as the Silver-Y, Rush Veneer and Diamond-back Moth being the commonest.
Scientists now have tracked these insects flying back over across the channel!!

Here's a sound clip that might interest you...
