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!

Gade Springs 24/07/12

Managed another trip to Gade Springs on this date, setting up 4 traps this time all 50 metres apart.
We managed a great deal of moths with close to 100 species again, unfortuately from then until now (with holiday and a house nmove in-between) I seem to have mislaid the catch report, so the photos will have to do!

Highlights were my very first examples of Coronet (a scarce Moth in Hertfordshire) Pammene fasciana and Oegoconia caradjai
