Passenger, caught 23/9/2006 (National moth night).

Mothing at St Margaret's

Most of the Moth lists and Photographs are from my garden (TR359450) in the village of St Margaret's at Cliffe in Kent. It is situated about 1Km from the sea and has farmland with in 100 metres. The garden is well shrubbed and about 1600 sq metres. I normally run a 125 MV lamp and a 15W actinic light over-night and once the season gets going a couple of other traps. At the moment both are 25W black Lamps. previously I used a 160W blended lamp in one of them. All traps are home made. Trapping dates refer to the date the trap was put out.
I try and identify all the Macro Moths, with the micros I am not at all systematic, I do more than I used to with the help of the new book, but there are some that do get through.

Species List for 29/9/2009

Barred Sallow was new last night, the second earliest I've recorded here (just 14 records).
I discovered that I had about 10 days in July still in my note book, but not on my data base. I've been catching up today and this will change the year to-date lists, just a little. I also caught my first Clancy's Rustic, but because it wasn't on my pre-typed check list I forgot to put it on last night.
