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 27/6/2013

A new micro for the site, Cochylis molliculana, a spcies now spreading through the SE and a Kitten. I always have trouble with these. They start as Poplar but always turn out to be Sallow. Although I've recorded this one as Sallow I'm still not 100% convinced. It seems that my first instincts were right and it is a Poplar. Thanks to David Howdon and Robin Hemming on UKmoths group for their help. Record ammended.
