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!

Earliest Mottled Umber

Well, earliest season first (This was the first species of 2020, trapped on the night of the new year) On new years day it was a fairly mild 7 degrees, only a few degrees cooler than last night.

Since the beginning, for me in 2006, this is my earliest of the newly hatched specimens (Mottled Umber are on the wing all winter) by 17 days!

Other than that, just a few bits and pieces still braving the floods.
