Kempston Garden Moths


Macro moths flying tonight, or last night, in Bedfordshire

Introduction updated 2018-04-23 23:58:38
We moved to Kempston, Bedford, Bedfordshire, UK at the end of September 2015.

I initially ran a 40W actinic Heath style trap in the garden. Since May 2016 I have been using a twin 30W actinic Robinson trap in preference to the 40W.

The moth blog for our previous garden in Bramingham, Luton, Bedfordshire can be found at:;blogrid=1

On UK holidays I run a 15W twin actinic Skinner trap when permitted to do so, results can be found at:;blogrid=3

A few of our trips to Europe have included moth trapping by the trip leaders and some photos are included in my galleries

A listing showing full details of the most recent three years of trapping together with an all years summary can be found here

2018 Garden Summary updated 2018-02-09 07:53:47

Summary from October 1, 2015 updated 2018-04-07 01:39:29
I trapped in our Luton garden from the middle of July 2008 to the end of September 2015:;blogrid=1
That garden is about 1km south of the northern boundary of Luton and about 0.5km from Bramingham Wood. I started trapping in our Kempston garden in October 2015. The garden is about 0.1km south of the river Great Ouse and is approximately 22km north and 5km west of the Luton garden. Both gardens are in VC 30, Bedfordshire.

411 species, excluding aggregates, were recorded in the Luton garden.

The following images show those species recorded in our Kempston garden that are not on our Luton list. (updated 2018-04-03):-
