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!

Catch Report - 19/03/12 - Farmland/Back Garden - Hertfordshire

Considering it was a clear sky and very cold again this morning with a ground frost, it didn't seem to affect the number's much, probably due to the day-time temperature peaking at around 14c then slowly dropping away until midnight.

133x Small Quaker's were the most numerous moth beating the previous highest of 87x individuals.

Nothing exciting and no new for year's.
