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!


NFY = New Species For The Year

New Moth attracting toy

Well I thought I would invest and try out one of these new 8w UV Blacklight which runs on 8x 2450mah AA batteries for 6 hours +
I will have to leave it running and see how long it does actually go for on a set of fully charged batteries.
I bought this primarily to take away with me in the Spanish mountains, and as we will be flying with ClassyJet I couldn't really lug too much equipment with me.
This seemed ideal and I have used the similiar and less powerful UV bank checker's which you can purchase from ebay.
If anyone is interested, the purchase link is below.
Now all we need is some mild nights errrm errr o :(
