My name is Sean Foote and I live in Haslemere is south-west Surrey. I first started trapping in July last year, and just like Billy, I have well and truly been bitten by the bug (or should that be the moth)! I have so far recorded an amazing 170 species in my tiny sub-urban garden so far, and I only use a bottom-of-the-range trap (a 15W Actinic)!
At the moment it is far to cold at night to trap, but hopefully with the wind changing to a more southerly, we can get going soon. The last time I trapped I got just four moths, but it did include a new for the year Early Thorn.
