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 Lists for 23/3/2011 to 29/3/2011

I finally got round to sorting my moth traps out and have run the MV 125W Skinner each night since the 23rd. Last night (29th) I also ran a 25W Blacklight. My actinic tube trap tripped all the fuses, so I cleaned it up, and it seems OK now, and I've swapped it with the Blacklight for tonight. So far the results have been poor, but then I'm not in a woodland like the chaps at Farningham woods and numbers are always dependant on migrants here. Things can only get better(I hope).
