I am fairly new to moth trapping, although I have done some before while living in Devon a few years back. I have run the trap about six times since acquiring it in July this year. One soon becomes familiar with the commoner species and those that stand out. I am currently only looking at macro moths; the micro moths i.e. ‘the small ones’, are a bit trickier to identify. I am armed with Bernard Skinner’s classic work ‘The Colour Identification Guide to the Moths of the British Isles’ and the Concise Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland (Townsend et al, 2007) and one or two other references to help with identification. So far I have recorded 37 species (see link on side bar). Some of these species were caught in multiples, others were just singletons. Below are a few pictures of some of the more photogenic species.
