Previously posted as Webb's Wainscot but have just been made aware that this is probably the rufous form of Bulrush.
Some suggestion that this may be Cardrina gilva. If so, it may be the furthest North that this species has reached so far? Native to SE Europe, it turned up in Spain in 2007 then Holland in 2009. All comments very welcome.
I've waited five years to catch this beauty.
An inconspicuous ladybird.
Female at top male at bottom. This female had a wingspan of 283mm and wing surface surface areas of over 300cm2 making it one of the largest moths on the planet. The males are a regular visitor (15-20 a year) but have only ever caught three females
