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 5/7/2014

Unusually for a night during NATIONAL MOTH NIGHT(S) weekend I actually caught quite a few moths, but true to form it was wet and I had a lot of drying out to do. Another warmish night with a minimum temperature of 15.8 deg C, humid and as I said rather damp brought 510 moths of 86 species, 28 of them micros. There was one new micro for the site and altogether ten new species for the year. There seems to have been a bit of an influz of European Corn Borers, I've never before caught double figures in one night.
