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.

A Slow Start

Believe it or not I've been putting a trap out for about three weeks, but I've only caught three moths.
A Pale Bridled Beauty on 20/2/2015, a Common Quaker on 7/3/2015 and a Hebrew Character on 10/3/2015. Not a great start so far. My PC,with all my Map Mate records is being repaired, and so far I haven't managed to get Mapmate to work on my Laptop. Fortunately despite an original terminal prognosis it now seems that the PC is repairable. It may be old but at least it seems to work OK on all my databases.
