Stainland 17th September 2017.

Anne woke me this morning to say there was a pretty moth near the door. Don't you just love early risers? Sigh.

It was a Common Marbled Carpet, a little worn. I had two Garden Rose Tortrix as well. One is a little different in markings/colour than the others I've posted. The second Tort is very worn indeed, initially, I wasn't sure what it was. Careful  examination shows the remainder of the dark pattern, about one third down it's body. I'm keenly waiting for someone to tell me I made the wrong ID.
