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.

Trap Update in 2017. A new 125W MV Robinson was added to a 125W MV Skinner, 15W Actinic Skinner, two 80W MV Morris modified Skinners and a 80W MVMorris Box trap.
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 3/8/2014 - Udate

Again a coolish night and fewer moths. In total 211 moths of 51 species.  Still there was a new micro, Caloptilia syringella, a leaf minor of both privet and lilac, both of which feature in the garden. Also a couple of others I need help with. First a pyralid, a bit like Sciota hostilis, but I'm not sure, and then another I really don't have a clue about. Nigel Jarman suggests that the pyralid is roborella and although it's a bit of a dull one I think he's nailed it, so I've added it to the database.
