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!

Catch Report - 11-04-13

Another reasonable night that included 2 more Oak Beauties, taking me upto 5 for the year. No more new Moths for the garden, but Acleris schalleriana was the only micro I have seen since the 19th of March.
I had yesterday night's moths, still in their pots so I didn't recapture them last night.
Absolutely tiddling down this morning but still feels mild.
