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 8/7/2014

A bid of a drizzle but overall not a bad night with a min Temp of 14.1 deg. C. In total there were 291 moths of 72 species. A second Langmaid's Yellow Underwing, that stood out as a very dull individual, and five new species for the year.


I always look forward to the first Trachycera advenella and it's relatves. I like pyralids and this group is a good one to sort out.
