Neon Moth

It's been sometime since I posted. I've not have any moths at the door in months now. I've not even had insects. Also, for the passed 3 weeks, I've had serious, very painful problems walking. Even across the room. I'm more or less recovered and thought I'd do a silly post, to let you know I'm alive. Not that you missed me. I created this image a while ago.

Neon Moth.

This one tonight is causing some confusion - c15mm wing length...perhaps Chestnut - not sure ?
With another one below of the same moth later in the evening perhaps showing the shape of the wings better when it moved for a better angle.
Spring Usher I think though it's markings are quite different from yesterdays one !

I put the light on more in hope than anything else and got a few nice rewards late evening.
I hope I have identified these correctly....?? (any corrections welcome)

Rare Goat Moth

Still quiet so I thought I'd liven the blog with this rather rare siting I  expect no one has found one of these in Calderdale

Still nothing, other than another Pale Bridled Beauty last night when it was a bit milder.
