Scarce Chocolate-tip - caught on July 26th

Scarce Chocolate-tip (Clostera anachoreta)

This was caught in my garden at St Margaret's. on July 26th. Sean Clancy reckon's that it is probably a migrant. A Red Data Book species in the British Isles, being restricted to the shingle beaches at Dungeness, Kent. It is also an occasional migrant, as adults are sometimes encountered elsewhere in the south. There were two caught in the Dungeness area on the 25th July.
