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 25/7/2014

Another good mothing night with a minimum temp, of 17.3 deg C. While I was looking at a couple of Diamond-backed moths I realised that one was definitely different and  I identifies it as Plutella porrectella, with the aid of the Field Guide to Micro Moths. It's always good to catch a Dioryctria sylvestrella, such a stunning moth. In total there were 443 moths of 87 species, 98 micros of 30 species. The Pine Hawk-moth was the seventh in the last nine years, I've never caught more than one in a year.
