Hot and Moths
? Tree-lichen Beauty
Red-necked Footman?? It's a micro probably Batia unitella
Double-striped Pug? (confirmed)
Small Argent and Sable? (Common Carpet)
These hot evenings seem to be stirring up the the local insects- quite a few moths recently and a lot of small beetles too in the obs. It's also stirring the local people up- five police cars outside at the moment following a little street riot.
The West's End aside, there's been a good range of moths which I have attempted at identifying (apologises for being an absolute beginner). As usual corrections more than welcome.
There were 3 Wood Sands on the farm today ,see here http://surreybirding.blogspot.com/
and I can hear them calling now (10pm).
