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!

Pale Brindled Beauty quadrupled

Last night I ran my garden trap again and after another mild day of 12 degrees, the sky cleared and it was pretty chilly and down to around 5 degrees this morning, so naturally at this time of year I expected no moths at all.
I was of course pleasantly surprised to find 4 Pale Brindled Beauties clinging to the brick wall behind my trap this morning, as do a lot of moths this time of year, they rarely go in the trap!
