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

My other (dark & controversial) hobby

I have had an interest in Entomology (particularly tropical Moths) for about 5 years now, and continue to collect specimens (in extreme moderation I must add and only for scientific purposes)
Here is my latest batch of specimens from Bolivia spread and drying on the setting boards and after 4 weeks will be named, dated and ready to be stored in the glass frames underneath.

It is the perfect hobby for this time of year when moth trapping is slow in this Country.
