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 of 23/8/2013

A lot of moths and a few goodies. Three new micros for the site, Summer Fruit Tortrix (Adoxophyes orana), Udea lutealis, a moth I've caught at other sites but never here before and Pyla fusca. The last is interesting in that it has thickened bases to the antennae, but these are not shown or mentioned in the " new" micro guide.
In addition there were several migrants, two Diamond-back Moths, a Gem, four Dark Sword-grass and 65 Silver Ys. A Tree-lichen Beauty and a Turnip may also fall into this category. In total there were 152 micros of  33 species and 509 macros of 59 species.
