Couple of beauties

Its slowed down here in Milton Keynes, up to 10species per night with only 20-30 moths. Bordered Beauty was new for the year on the 22nd and a surprise Lilac Beauty last night (23rd) with Deep-brown Dart, Centre-barred Sallow and Hypsopygia glaucinalis also showing.

Beauties with Lunar Underwing.

Also an update on the Footman i had on Friday 19th September, it hasn't been chopped as yet, but my expert is 99% sure its a Scarce Footman. He said the forewings look silvery with a very faint stripe along leading edge which looks more like Hoary, but Hindwings have a faint yellow colouring instead of pure white which says Scarce Footman. Interestingly too he says rather than it being a second brood moth, its more likely to be a migrant.
