Jayne's Cornish Moths

Small elephant hawk mothI was inspired to start mothing after attending a Cornwall Wildlife Trust moth morning in a garden in Zennor back in 1998.  The following year a friend brought me a heath trap for my birthday and may partner made me an MV light trap. I have since recorded approximately 400 species of moths.

My records cover the moths found in a two-kilometer area near our house, most of the moths have been caught in my moth traps in the garden but some I have just been casual sightings in the general area.

I've put together a fun report of the moths that have been recorded at my home on the Penwith Moors in Penzance, Cornwall. It is a PDF file that you can download for your own personal use. Jaynes fun moth report
