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!

Rather unsettled for moth trapping

This past week has been rather unusual for this time of year, mild..warm even but wet at times and very windy. We've also had some chilly nights.
Even when the nights have been warm (+8c), the wind has scuppered the catches and mot times i've only managed 1 moth, with 1 blank so far.

The only new species for the year this week was a Pale Brindled Beauty on Tuesday night, I expected more with a minimum of 10 degrees!

Garden species count for 2020 now upto 8.
