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 23/7/2014

Still quite warm, min 17.4 deg C, and lots of moths, but mainly the usual suspects. There were five new species for the year. In total 645 moths of 99 species, including 132 micros of 34 species. There should be more but some of the tiny dots elude capture and me identifying them!

 White Line Dart had become annual, albeit in small numbers, although my first did not occur until 2009.

 Four Heralds in one night makes this the year with most records of this moth, featured on the back spine of  "The Field Guide".

Small Purple-barred is quite regular as a day flying moth, particularly down on the old tramway at Langdon. This is only the fifth I've caught in the garden and the first since  2009.
