This little guy was definitely the star of my show. The Moth night was concentrating on migrants and although this is a common moth he is both a migrant species and a new one for me.

Update: as per a general consensus now we've got the ID of the Lesser Yellow Underwing, thanks to George here, and Benny over at Back Garden Moths.

Not sure about the ID on this guy, we saw three of these total the other two were quite worn.

This one is a bit more uncommon so was happy to see him, they are a migrant species that established themselves in a few locations.
