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!

Bramfield Woods/Basil's Park Wander

Some recent finds from me during brief walks through Bramfield Woods/Basil's Park here in Hertfordshire. Even when the weather is windy and overcast you will find moths by tapping the vegetation. Two new moths for my UK list, Lobesia reliquana and Schreckensteinia festaliella (Which I literally cannot converse in any way shape or form yet). I believe the two moths that are new to me, are pretty good records for Herts.
