Following on...
I am a relative newbie to Moth trapping. I built a "Skinner trap" early in the summer of 2009 and unleashed its power in my back garden at the end of June.

In hindsight, I was totally unprepared for what happened next. The next morning I had about 80-90 very active moths in the trap and only a copy of Collins British Insects as a totally inadequate guide.

However, what fun I had trying to sort out what I had captured. In the end, I managed to identify about 50 of them, I probably lost 30-40 in the process. My hit rate got better as weeks and months moved on.
