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 12/10/2015

A catch up job! The day after I got back from a birding trip to Paraguay, I manage to fall backwards down the stairs carry a chest of draws. When I came round Pam was on the phone arranging an ambulance and I ended in Ashford hospital for a few hours. Everything seemed OK on the scans, but I was surprised to find it took me weeks, not days, to feel OK and want to sit at a computer. Such is old age!
