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 21/8/2013

The first running of my two traps that had previously used  "Black/Blue" lamps but now with 160W Mercury Tungsten Blended lamps. Unfortunately the threat of rain meant that I didn't run them all through the night, and although a lot of moths seemed to be around them the results were disappointing.

125W MV 38 Micros 200 Macros
25W Actinic 22 Micros 57 Macros
160W MTB A 7 Micros 27 Macros
160W MTB B 5 Micros 31 Macros

 Of course the siting of the traps has a major affect on the numbers, but I was expecting more than there were in the two modified traps.
