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 16/7/2014

The warmest night I've recorded this year with a min temp of 17.2 deg C. The first Garden Tiger of the year was a pleasant reminder of my childhood, when "woolly bears" were a common sight. Altogether there were 478 moths of 94 species, 99 micros of 32 species and 379 macros of 62 species. I ran all five traps and of course the locations are important as far a the catches go. My 125W MV Skinner type trap had 196 moths, the three 80W MV traps had 97, 77 and 76 moths and the 15W Actinic tube 32 moths.
