Littlehampton moths

Red Underwing, Catocala nupta
We've had many moths visit our balcony since the amazing Clifden Nonpareil on 1st September. New species were a Delicate (Mythimna vitellina), a Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner (Cameraria ohridella) plus Red Underwings on 14th & 17th. I found the rascal eating our geranium leaves - a Cabbage Moth larva. The Poplar Hawk-moth larvae are still growing though diminished in number - I counted just 5 yesterday.
