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!

Off the mark finally...

..After trying 3 times previous to last nights efforts and catching a big fat 0 each time, I was finally rewarded with the first two moths of 2014, singles of Pale Brindled Beauty and Chestnut.

I may moan, but looking back on last years January catches, I am pretty much on par at the moment.








20 Moths in total for last January, the huge gap between the 07th and the 29th was when we had the snow last year.
So if we don't get snow this month I do hope to trump this figure.
