When we started recording moths, a number of challenges that arose. From learning how to trap and record moths effectively to identifying different species, there's a lot of information to take in. It's also important to consider the conditions in which we're trapping and recording moths, as different species are attracted to different types of light and habitats. Additionally, accurately identifying and documenting moths can be challenging, especially for those who are new to the hobby. However, with practice and experience, these challenges can be overcome and the rewards of recording moths can be truly exceptional. Whether you're looking to learn more about the natural world, or simply enjoy the beauty of these fascinating insects, the challenges of moth recording are well worth the effort.
