Red Underwing and a Kingfisher

Red Underwing, Catocala nupta
Last night I was delighted to find another large and beautiful moth on our balcony, the Red Underwing (Catocala nupta). Other moths seen the past two days: Light Emerald, Small Dusty Wave, Bright-line Brown-eye, Brimstone Moth, Clothes Moth (Monopis species), Square-spot Rustic, Willow Beauty, Large Yellow Underwing.
During yesterday afternoon I sat in the Ramsar hide at Arundel WWT where the Kingfisher presented itself again.
