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

Sunday, 18 October 2020

Much ado about the same...

Last night's catch was almost the same, but with an addition of a Spruce Carpet which failed to co-operate for a photo, and several fresher November Moth species, which also would not lay flat.

A slightly better conditioned Red-line Quaker turned up, as well as my second 2020 record of Orange Sallow which is over a month apart from the year first specimen that I took back in mid-September.

Stevenage, North Herts, VC20.
