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, 5 June 2016

A sunny afternoon in the garden.

A quick post, and still have last night's catch report to write up which I fear will be a double post after tonight's catch!

Cauchas rufimitrella still going strong in my garden with 30+ counted today in the sunshine, a mating pair was the highlight.
Also 3x Mompha subbistrigella and 1x Mompha epilobiella which was NFY and which I missed out on last year...Diamond-backs I think I give up with now!
