About the challenge

The challenge is just a friendly competition to see how many species of moth you can record in your garden during the year! You can check out the rules >Here
It is great to see people joining the challenge. We hope many more of you will sign up! All you have to do is let me know you want to take part and give me the following info:

  1. Your name
  2. The county you live in
  3. Your current species total for 2013
  4. Your email address (this isn't compulsory, but I will need it if you want to contribute to the blog) 
This challenge is open to anyone interested in moths (beginner or expert alike). Owning a moth-trap is not vital, though it will help boost your species total. Once you are registered, please feel free to use the blog to post updates and to post images of species you are having difficulty identifying!

You can keep me updated with your running species totals via twitter (@inkednaturalist) or by emailing me directly!If you use twitter, you can also follow updates by using the hashtag #teammoth

Plain Clay - 1st record in Cumbria since the 50's (trapped in my garden last year)!
We encourage you to submit all your moth records to you local recorder. If you don't know who your recorder is, have a look at this link: http://www.mothscount.org/uploads/CMR_List_County_Format_04_03_2013.pdf

We would like to get as many moth-ers involved in this challenge as we can, so if you know someone who would be interested in participating, please let them know! This challenge is available to people world-wide.

We look forward to hearing and seeing what you have recorded in your garden!
