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!

KEY

New mobile set-up!

Well here is my new mobile Moth trapping set-up, it comprises of a Fluorescent Daylight 4-pin Lamp with 28 watts of power
This I have attached to a metal pole so I can stick it in the ground and then put white sheets around it on the floor.
The Lamp is run from a 20ah powerpack and will run probably fo about 8 hours max.

Here is the Lamp set-up and in action.

It is pretty bright so should attract a few Moths???

I will be posting my results of a trip out last night soon!
