Lee Mount - Monday 25th July

Quieter last night compared with previous ones though the evening seemed perfect.
1 large grey looking Hawkmoth early on which I suspect was a Poplar Hawkmoth but just didn't get enough on it before it was off - it looked to have some orangey patches on the hindwing but only saw it in flight - it would not come to rest !
Swallowtail x 4
Riband Wave x 7 (but not a sign of any Plain Wave)
Least Yellow Underwing x 1
Snout x 2
Brimstone x 1
Flame Shoulder x 1
Large Yellow Underwing x 1
Dark Arches x 1
Buff Arches x 1
Clouded Border x 1
Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing x 1
Unidentified - first photo below

Micro - Carcina quercana (I think) - small - same as on the front of Micro Moths  Field Guide illustrated by Lewington. Colour was hardly showing on the moth other than on the photo !
 Unidentified - wing length c17mm
 Clouded Border
 Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing
