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 22/06/2017

One of my favourite micros appeared last night. Evergestis Limbata was first recorded in the UK in 1993 or 1994 and was a very rare migrant for a few years. I caught the first one here in 2003 but the second was in 2006. Since then it has been annual with between one and four per year, except 2013 when there were 11 records. Last nights was the 44th here.
