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 15/07/2017

After a pleasant evening at Sandwich Bay's moth evening we got the traps on for Jacks last day here before his return to Clitheroe. We had a decent night of 388 moths of about 85 species, and we didn't count all the grass moths in the last three traps before departing to meet Pete at Rutland. There were one or two goodies, including two Small Mottled Willows and, unusually in the trap, a Small Red-barred.
