It has been quite a while since I last trapped, due to packing up for the move and unpacking in our new home, plus time away at the Bird Fair and illness, so I thought it was about time I tried. Now Trapping in the new place will not be as good in many ways as I have had to tone down my bulb, no longer do I have the super bright MV bulb glaring away, instead I have a actinic type, which will attract less moths, but as I only have a small garden which is surrounded by buildings I thought I should be nice.
First Moth Trapping in Our New Home
Before bed I checked the trap just to see if it was working and there was my first moth, a very tatty Large Yellow-Underwing, not the best but as it is the first it gets special mention.

Nice numbers of Yellow Underwings and a life tick on my first trapping here is pretty special with me!
- Large Yellow Underwing – 14
- Flounced Rustic – 13
- Rustic – 1
- Garden Carpet – 1
- Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing – 1
- White-shouldered House-moth – 1
- Square-spot Rustic 1
- MOUSE MOTH – 3 – NFM
It must be said the photos will start to change once I get my garage sorted and set up my new Macro studio (the joys of moving means it is currently full to bursting with boxes and junk). Anyway here are the rest of today’s photos, enjoy.
