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 19/7/2014

Another damp warm night with a min temp of 18.6 deg C. There were not as many Diamand-backed Moths, but still to many for me to count given the number of other moths. In total were 714 moths of  106 species. 113 micros of 31 species, two new for the year and Trachycera marmorea new for the site. The record of Perinephela lancealis  was only the forth for the site, one in 2006 and two in 2013. Amazingly each of these years also had a record on July 19th! There were 601 macros of 75 species but nothing new for the year.
