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!

Still struggling

Very quiet again last night with clear skies and falling temperatures to 3c, a few Moths about but nothing special, best of the night was m first Pale Tussock of the year.
At least there seems a little more variet each morning now.

Looking towards the end of the week, the temperatures look set to soar and we could get some mild overcast nights at last!
