    That looks like our one we've got living in front of the kitchen door. It gets absolutely stuffed on moth trap nights, usually 2 or 3 biggies get caught. Not sure it'd like to be moved to the garden though, likes it's nice dry comfy spot! LOL

    It must have been a good year for Red Admirals. I'm still seeing them in the garden enjoying the last of the nectar in the Autumn sunshine.

    We are having a lovely spell of warm sunny weather & it's kept a lot of the butterflies going, we had a walk around the lanes behind the house yesterday & spotted these, Long-tailed Blue (Pea-blue)

    a worn Copper

    a Geranium blue

    Common blue

    Speckled woods

    plus Clouded Yellows, Peacocks & Red Admirals & Small Whites,

    There also a lot of dragons still about with one of my favourites, at least 4 Red-veined darters,

    Also a Common darter (I think)

    also 2 Southern Hawkers, managed to get an ID from the photo but not a good shot!

    Having a reasonably mild spell here,  albeit misty & damp but never expected to see this 12mm  creature today ... wonder what sustenance it gained from bird suet ball?

    There had to be a vid!! Lol
