What’s in the moth box?

I record moths in the garden at Bubble HQ and in the surrounding areas of Dalby Forest and in the North York Moors here in North Yorkshire. By submitting the records at the end of the year to the local recorder (my area is in VC62), I hope that I’m making a contribution to the study of moths in the area. This section shows highlights of the records for each month between April and September each year. This does not mean that I’m not mothing for the rest of the year, it just means that it’s a little quieter. In fact, some months may report zero results…that’s not much to write about! Hopefully, you’ll enjoy seeing the moths and should you have great moth facts/stories/successes/failures then let me know in the comments at the end of a post.




Hi, I’m Nicky - blogger, writer and photographer forever feeding a nature obsession.

I’m a forest dweller who can mostly be found topping up the feeders in my garden bird feeding station, lying prone identifying cliff-top wildflowers or performing night-time shenanigans with a net trying to identify moths but, above all, I’m never ever to be found without a camera or my too-curious-by-far labradoodle cross (crossed with what we're not sure!), Bess.

This blog is a place where I can share the enjoyment of sunrises and sunsets, mountains, meadows and marshes, seashores and skies, woods and wildlife. It’s also about lifestyle, issues, news, art, literature, music, events…if it has a nature theme then why not?

I live, write and record nature.

Welcome to Nicky by Nature.
