Dungeness 10th October 2009

Red-line Quaker - A nice distinctive Noctuid, fairly common across much of Britain.
Large Wainscot - An inhabitant of reed-beds and riversides being fairly common in the south and east of England then becoming more local to the north.
The Mallow - No prizes for guessing what the main larval foodplant for this species is!

Feathered Brindle - A rather localised moth along the coastline of Southern Britain.

Black Rustic - If only all Noctuid were this easy!

Autumnal Rustic - Another relatively easy Noctuid to identify but more variable than the above.
Feathered Ranunculus - Another coastal moth, found along the southern, north-western and Welsh coasts of Britain.

Many thanks to the staff at Dungeness Bird Observatory for allowing me to photograph some of their catch, it goes without saying that permission must be sought before delving into the trap(s).
