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.

Moths Caught in 2009

Tamarisk Peacock (Chiasmia aestimaria)

Caught on Sept 7th 2009, in my garden trap. This is the fifth record for the UK and all have been east Kent, the others are: Sholden (16.08.04), New Romney (28.09.04), Greatstone (07.08.06) and Folkestone Warren (10.09.08).

Mothing took place on 192 dates, between Mar 13th to Nov 3rd. A 125w MV, a 15W Actinic trap and 2 Black bulbs (one replacing the 160W MVB when I ran out of spare bulbs). For some of the time I used 15w Black bulbs while waiting for new 25W replacements. All traps home made, loosely based on the Skinner design.
