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!

Herts Recent Notables and Rarities Reported

Friday, 27 March 2020

Another early record!

And by 5 days, I thought it was mega early but I usually start seeing them in the first week of April.

Nut-tree Tussock headed a catch comprising of 12 moths of 6 species last night to the actinic trap here in Stevenage, North Herts... an incredible catch considering it was just 1c.

Still cold at nights and fairly uninspiring, but with beautiful warm and sunny days, which is set to change after tomorrow.

Garden species count for 2020 now upto 27.
