Growing up, I often imagined myself charging through the jungle in pursuit of some exotic creature then whispering excitedly into an imaginary camera.
Eventually, I did indeed have an enjoyable and productive career in the wildlife sector, mainly
working in the field of UK wildlife, often travelling around the country in search of bats and birds.
At the age of 40, however, I was diagnosed with a serious neurological illness which has resulted in full paralysis. I needed to find wildlife that would come to me, rather than having to travel to see it. Then I heard about moth-trapping.
