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!

Peacock's Island, Broom GPs
A view of the Island looking South-West, after the scrub clearance.
A fairly early start this morning (2nd) with a quick bike ride around the Broom Gps complex before doing some scrub clearance work on Peacock's Island. A nice tally of both departing and arriving migrants- HERE.
I didn't bring my camera but here's an idea of what we got up to- taken from ED GREEN'S BLOG in 2009.
Getting back to Mothing, it was a bit windy last night but I persevered anyway. The catch was quite low, but it was nice to get a year tick for an expected macro moth.
Last year I caught 25 of these, so relatively common in the area.
