Moths from Steve Broyd

The top photo depicts a Yellow-horned Moth from Biddenden and the bottom photo shows Lead-coloured Drab from Biddenden last year.

Steve said this about Lead-coloured Drab - 'This is a notoriously difficult species to separate from Clouded Drab but has different jizz - looking stockier with a rounded forewing and most in males, noticeably feathered antennae. It is much scarcer than Clouded Drab using Aspen and Black Poplar as its primary food plants.'
