Small China-mark at Arundel WWT

Small China-mark, Cataclysta lemnata

Yesterday afternoon I visited Arundel WWT. I hoped to see a Small China-mark moth which I have only seen once before on the reed bed walk. This time I photographed two, one at each end of the walkway. They are only visible when flying and can only be photographed when they land on a reed right by the walkway.
