Lee Mount - 15th October

2 Silver Y from this morning... just wanted to check i d as they look quite different..
The top one was much paler (quite silvery) smaller than the lower one which was larger and darker.
I've never seen Scarce Silver Y - which in any case would seem to be out of season anyway but always worth a check. (?)
c 15 mm

Common Marbled Carpet x 3 together  - and all pretty worn
November Moth agg x 5
Blair's Shoulder-knot x 1
Light-brown Apple-moth x 4
Tachystola acroxantha x 1

You will know when you get a Scarce Silver y...its all to do with the larval food stage to size ,,, I had one of the small gammina a few years ago and the nigricans yoursform type could be one of
