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 here in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

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!

08/05/18 - Back Garden Mothing

A better catch on Tuesday night with over 40 moths of the usual suspects and still hanging onto Orthosias here which seem to go on forever!
Three new for year species was pleasing though, Toadflax Brocade is a regular here with both broods usually turning up.
Iron Prominent isn't so common, with some years missing this species all together.

Here is last Tuesday's new for year species.
