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

A few bits

Continuing the general trend of this year, I have just heard that it has been the coldest spring for 50 years, not great for our lepidopterian friends then.

Today I saw a Cinnabar and Nut-tree Tussock at the Anchor pub in Wadesmill here in Hertfordshire, the Cinnabar had somehow got inside the light!

At home I have had a little pet and a garden tick, a bundle of twigs forming Psyche casta, it was found on a leaf in the garden, but since being indoors it has ventured from the leaf and is hanging on the underside of the pot which it is in, is it about to emerge possibly? I hope it is a male.....
