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 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!

Garden Catch 21/06/18 - Garden Trapping

With a decreased catch the night before using the 250w, it was time to step down to the 'good old faithful' 125 as conditions weren't to be as warm overnight, with clear warm days

Just 2 species were added to the year list, including a lovely Blue-bordered Carpet (With just the one previous record in 2013).

Garden species count for 2018 now upto 246.

Here are the new for year species.
