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 13/7/2013

A much busier night, and with the garden opening and things to do I was a bit rushed sorting the four traps out. I suspect a few few Clouded Silvers left without reporting in! At lead I had a fair few species to show people, The Hawk moths were favourites, closely followed by the Buff Tip. As 'mothers' we probably don't appreciate just how fantastic a Buff Tip is to the uninitiated. There were 197 moths of 53 species including 16 micros of six species.
