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!

The final moth species of 2019...probably. Winter Moth

On Thursday night a moth was attracted to our lit kitchen window, a day later another moth was sitting on my car door underneath a streetlight.
They both were of course Winter Moths! I had to wait until the weekend to get a photo of one as it's dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home, just 6 days before the days start slowly drawing out again, thank goodness!

Here is one of the Winter Moths, species no.464 for the year here in my Stevenage garden.
