A site dedicated to a homemade garden Moth Trap and the amazing contents found within. My interest was sparked in 2009 by my then 4 year old son, Louie. He and his sister Keely help me in the mornings, photographing and releasing the contents of this Bedfordshire trap. I hope you enjoy the Blog!

The master of disguise........
A bit of a dodgy photo, but this is the extremely variable Acleris hastianafrom the 15th. Apparently there are over 120 recognised forms! No wonder I needed some expert help from David Manning.
NB....... Bradley (1973) says........"an almost infinite number of combinations of the forms with
longitudinal and transverse markings are found and include .......figs17-20"
