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.

Trap Update in 2017. A new 125W MV Robinson was added to a 125W MV Skinner, 15W Actinic Skinner, two 80W MV Morris modified Skinners and a 80W MVMorris Box trap.
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 8/7/2011

As predicted a wet night, but I ran two traps in "protected" positions. Two new pyralids for the year. I think I saw Ditula angustiorana last weekend, but when I was in a hurry and not "doing" micros properly. Also he first Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing. This one was obvious, but it wiss soon be time to check for Langmaid's. Sooner than I thought. Just found another "LBBYU" that I'd missed in the corner of my MV trap and it is indeed a Langmaid's Yellow Underwing!
