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!

Streamer to the kitchen light

Just before going to bed, my wife said that 'There's a moth on the door' and there was indeed, a geo sitting on the french door.
Of course as soon as I opened it, it flew off!
Armed with a torch and the ever trusty spare net that resides in the garden, I climbed onto one of the garden chairs and stretched gto my limit to net it.
A beautiful Streamer it was and species no.38 for the year.

This isn't a common moth in my garden with 1 record or sometimes none turning up per year.

I'll be leaving my kitchen light on more often :D
