Paddock Wood, 19th September 2009

Silver Y - a common immigrant species often encountered in large numbers during the day on the coast under the right conditions
Silver Y - at rest.

Large Fruit-tree Tortrix - makes a nice change from all the Light Brown Apple Moth in their various guises.

Common Marbled Carpet - I got confused with where the postmedian line is, thus this is a Common Marbled as it's curved and not angular (Thanks Alan)

Common Marbled Carpet - and from above.
All taken at light in the garden on National Moth Night. In total I caught 20 species with the most common being Lunar Underwing.
