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!

After watching what seemed like everybody else locally catching these over the last few years. Finally one turned up in my garden. It looked like the last chance for a while too, as from tonight the wind direction will swing round to become a strong northerly.
Migrant wise, I also trapped two Dark Sword-grass and a Diamond-back Moth.
