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 11/7/2014

After a blank night when I gave in to the weather, a far more productive catch than I expected, with a new micro for the site and a lot of moths. I've undoubtedly underestimated the number of Diamond-backed moths, as they were leaving the traps as I collected them in. All together 570 moths of 90 species, 154 micros of 25 species and 416 macros of 65 species. I didn't put the traps on until between 1015 hrs and 1030 hrs  when the rain had reduced to a drizzle, the min temp was 15.9 deg C.
