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!

Movement in March

Yes! thinks are slowly looking up and a few moths around and in the trap last night, a high of around 10 degrees during the day and plenty of cloud cover ensued into the darkness and with a predicted minimum temperature of 6 degrees I thought I might at least get one moth.

This now brings the yearly total to a very pleasing 30 moths of 17 species.

It is GMS tonight, so for the first year I will be participating in this event.
Good luck everyone.
