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 3/8/2015

A lot more moths this morning, 449 of about 97 species,and while I was doing through my moth traps a Hummingbird Hawk Moths was nectaring on a buddleia bush next to me. Being so close to the coast I suspect that the Jersey Tiger could be a migrant. The first three Scarce Bordered Straws of the year for the site. 
Four-spotted Footman - male, the female has the spots.
Scarce Bordered Straw, this one looks a bit worn.

Scarce Bordered Straw, the best of the three.

Scarce Bordered Straw, a fairly typical specimen,

Scarce Bordered Straw- a really tatty one.
