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 05/07/2017

A new moth for the site, but one that I didn't recognise. I sent the picture to my grandson Jack, who told me correctly it was a Green Arches. I mistakenly thought that a Green Arches would be green, but like so many green moths the colour fades rapidly in bright light. It made a good role reversal, and is gratifying to see how knowledgeable he has become. In total there were 379 moths of about 88 species.
