Help please

After catching little besides Lunar and Yellow underwings  for what seems like the last month something different. As well as these two which are giving me problems also a Beaded Chestnut.

 Tom Stevenson, Benson


  1. Hello Tom, the first is a worn Pale Mottled Willow while the second is Vine's Rustic. As you'll see in the text of the field guide, the ground colour of the latter does vary somewhat and is not always as obviously grey as in the illustration.

  2. Thought the second was a Vines but the book says Aug-Sep.
