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 4/8/2012

A fair night with a good example of the scarce migrant Cydia amplana. Total 207 moths of 57 species. I rested the female Oak Eggar on a shrub on our back porch and later was amazed to see a male flying round the area in sunlight about an hour later. He didn't take long to find her and within an hour she had produced a good "clutch" of eggs. Any advice on how to bring these through would be appreciated. I've included a NFS tag on the Cnephasia longana, although I have caught two or three before and had them identified on UKmoths a few days ago.For some reason if I now make changes on an old post on blogger, I loose all the table formatting which is a considerable nuisance. As they weren't included in the daily list then. I've now put that right as I caught one last night.
