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!

A field foray at the start of May

Had a nice stroll around the river at Bishop's Stortford today and found a few day flying micro-moths including plenty of Adela reaumurella, Syndemis musculana a few Cocksfoot Moth Glyphipterix simpliciella and 2 new species for me, one each of Phyllonorycter quercifoliella and Caloptilia alchimiella.
