Svensson's Copper Underwing

Photos taken by Keith Heaven at Sandwich 10/8/12. As is quite typical for this (and other related) species it was found seeking shelter in a patio umbrella (nest boxes seem to be a favourite as well). The dark labial palps with pale tips are often quoted as one of the ways to separate this from Copper Underwing.
