Red Admirals and a Lesser Yellow Underwing

Red Admiral, Vanessa atalanta
On October 5th I found a Lesser Yellow Underwing moth on the balcony. On 16th I visited Arundel WWT where I saw Shovelers and the 4 cygnets that the Trumpeter swans have raised this year. On October 9th a visit to Bleeding cement works gave me plenty of insects but no Long-tailed Blue. There are plenty of Red Admirals flying around.
