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!

March - A brief comparison between 2013/2014

Well not really much to compare really.
After a really chilly and cold Winter, March 2013 was really cool compared to this March which had temperatures above average, thus presenting more trapping opportunities and more moths to show for it.
Last year Common Quaker, Small Quaker and Clouded Drab did not show until late April!

Below is a summary of the species caught in both March 2013/2014
