A battered macro

I'm not sure if there is enough left of this rather worn and battered individual for identification.
It was 26mm from wing tip to wing tip. It would have been slightly more if flat but it seemed to adopt this resting position with the wings slightly raised.

Other than this it was pleasing that White-point and Scarce Bordered Straw have both reached North Oxfordshire. Over 100 Large Yellow Underwings on each of the last two nights have boosted overall numbers.

  1. Hi Andy, given the wing shape and what's left of the markings my guess is Tawny-barred angle. But it is just a guess!

  2. I'd also go for Tawny-barred Angle.
