Welcome

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!

Amblyptilia acanthadactyla by day : Species no.20 for 2021

I was just setting up the jetwash for my wife to do our patios (She enjoys the satisfaction of doing this), when I spotted an Amblyptilia acanthadactyla sitting on the back gate.

This is a really common Plume moth in my garden and slightly more common than Emmelina monodactyla.

Just too cold for running a trap at the moment.

The next 'mothy action' will see me go 'Sallowing' to try and find some moths away from home.

Moth species for 2021 in the garden now stands at 20.
