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!

Moth no.63 Adela reamurella

I found a pair of Adela reamurella basking on our rather bright green bush in the garden, yesterday on Bank Holiday Monday, I cannot remember what species of bush it is, but it always seems to attract some very good critters during the year once in leaf.

It wasn't a particularly warm day, with a keen NW breeze, but the sun did help to warm the temperatures up a degree or two from the weekends high single figure daytime temps.

Here is a Male, the female was very active and wouldn't sit still long enough for a photo.

Garden species count for 2019 now upto 63.
