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!

No.40 - Adela reamurella

I haven't bothered with the trap for a few nights now going on other people's catches in my area (some people getting just 1 or 2 Hebrew Characters) but I did have a nice surprise at the bottom of the garden this evening in the sunshine, a little gathering of sparkling fairies in our small Conifer tree which only could be Adela reamurella, interestingly all 6 I potted were males.
It now brings the garden year-list to 40 species which isn't bad, but isn't great either.
