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 in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Essex

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!

Latest moth highlights

Very little my end as usual for this time of year.
I was blessed with two moths last night though to my security light which was a nice surprise.

Both Emmelina monodactyla and Satellite were found after dusk at around 6.30pm.

Both moths were new for the year.

In other news, I had a really enjoyable time yesterday meeting familiar people and new faces at the Herts Moth Group AGM.
