Moths and Butterflies. September 2012.

 With the mothing still proving to be a challenge, I was glad to get a couple of hours in, but the weather was very cold and there did not seem much on the wing. Catch of the night went to the Canary Shouldered Thorn, what a lovely moth they are. 

 The Silver Y moths were seen on a number of occasions feeding in the garden during the day alongside the butterflies. I was even lucky enough to get a couple of shots of Red Admiral and Small Tortoiseshell. The Tortoiseshells are very numerous at the moment, the best numbers I can remember to of seen, with 5 at times on the buddleia.
