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 - 22/04/12 - Farmland/Back Garden - Hertfordshire

A chance opportunity of trapping last night, and although numbers were well down in relation to the war 7c we had most of the evening, it paid off with garden firsts of Streamer and the ever controversial Muslin Moth (nearly Muslim), both of which I've had commonly in my previous residences and in local woods across Herts and Essex.
Still no Micro's!
