Stainland.

Two moths today. The first one, I'm not 100% sure of, but think it is a Dark Arches. If so, it's another first for me.

 Dark Arches. TBC.

The second one is, as far as I can tell, a Common Plume. I've photographed several of these over the last four years. None of them have had the red/brown patches on legs and wings. I know they can vary in marking or colouration, so I've settled on that. 

Common Plume. TBC

Hi
Thanks Andy, that was the first one I looked at. Then I read "...especially coastal dunes..." Had I bothered to look at the distribution map, I would have gone with it. A lesson learned! It's still a first for me, which is nice.
