Dungeness Bird Observatory, 2nd May 2010

Lime-speck Pug - A well distributed and distinctive pug - which makes a nice change!

Light Feathered Rustic - "A very variable moth, with examples ranging from pale buff to dark brown with varying markings.

Distributed mainly in the south of England, but also in the Welsh hills, the favoured habitats are calcareous soils, shingle beaches, quarries and similar stony areas." (UKMoths)

Cochylis atricapitana (966) - Quite well distributed throughout Britain but more commonly found around the coast.
