Six-striped Rustic

Six-striped Rustic
Another Rustic suspect, this one looks more like the Six striped Rustic to me but I just am not good enough at this to be sure.

Thanks to the folks at Back Garden Moths for the ID on this moth!

Glyphotaelius pellucidus -Caddis Fly

Glyphotaelius pellucidus -Caddis Fly
These are really interesting little dudes, they are related to the moth, attracted to light, and yet I can find hardly any online info about the UK species, so in any case here is another.

Diamond-back Moth

Diamond-back Moth
We had one of these little ones in our garden a few days ago, but the photos were really bad. I was happy to get this one :)
They normally rest with antennae straight ahead and flat.

Orange Swift

Orange Swift
This orange swift seemed quite brown, and I had thought I had a female here, actually it maybe just a darker male. Female was there on a later date so photos to follow :)
