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!

Garden Catch 17/07/18 - Pine Hawky

I actually had a night off before the 17th of July as the drop in temperature with a clear sky and bright moon didn't warrant the effort, this night however was well worth it with only my second garden record of Pine Hawk-moth.
Apart from that it was fairly quiet on the new species for the year front!

Garden species count for 2018 now upto 379.

Here are the new for year species.
