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!

Lights off at midnight and things pick up!

Well..I didn't stay up to see if the council had sorted the lights out to go off at midnight, but I don't think I needed too as the proof was in the trap!
9 moths in total of 4 species was a marked improvement on the 1s or 2s I was getting on previous nights and it was also quite chilly out there this morning at 5c.
