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 17/7/2013

I had a KOS meeting last night and intended to put my records into Map-mate and blog last night. I fell asleep in front of the PC and failed to finish before zonking out completely. The night of the 17th was cooler than the preceding three and although there were still a good number of moths it was less hectic than the preceding nights. There were 206 moths of around 58 species, including 36 micros of 12 species.
