Paddock Wood - 5th September 2009

Feathered Gothic - A relatively common moth but superbly marked.
Light Emerald - Not much smaller than the Large Emerald and I was pleased that my six-year old son identified it for himself from the Waring and Townsend guide pointing out the red marks on the forewing tips. Now to get him onto those tricky noctuids...

Flounced Rustic - ...speaking of which! Another common and widespread moth.

Carcina quercana - A pretty little micro (although this ones quite a plain individual) which many amateurs (like me!) spend ages looking for amongst the tortricidae.
All taken at light in my Paddock Wood garden.
More photos to come in the week as I've got a bit behind.
