Pale Pinion

Here at Westcott, Bucks I'm still getting little to the garden actinic trap apart from Orthosia species but at least their numbers are at last steadily increasing.  One slightly more interesting arrival last night was a Pale Pinion.  I used to get them regularly until 2010 then there was a gap until last year when the moth re-appeared.  Its stable-mate Tawny Pinion was always far less frequent here and I haven't seen one anywhere locally for five years now, but live in hope that it might come back.
