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!

Wecome to the norm

Last night in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
Just 4 moths to my MV Robinson Trap.

Emmelina monodactyla
Early Grey (getting on for my latest record ever)
Pebble Prominent [NFY]
Shuttle-shaped Dart

A mainly cloudy night but cool by this morning again and a little blowy.
This is one of the worst transitional periods most of us experience every year moth trapping, it's normally dictated by the weather from my experience and these cold nights are having a detrimental affect on moths for me at the moment.

Hopefully things pick up soon.
