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 9/6/2014

Wow! An amazing catch for me, I can't remember getting 101 species in a night before, and still a couple of "tiddlers" in the fridge that may yet be identifiable. The threatened rain didn't materialise and the min temp was 16.3 deg C. In total there were 646 moths, 31 micro species and 70 macro species. I thought that I had caught a very early Scarce Footman, but closer inspection showed it to be an very early Hoary Footman, my first here. Scorched Wing is always a favourite. what a fabulous pattern.
