Lead Coloured Drab

No Aspen about and its unlikely in this location, I have posted it on the Scottish Moths forum and Roy Leverton has indeed confirmed it as a Common Quaker. He says:
"It is indeed Common Quaker, but quite an unusual colour. I haven't seen one like this. Lead-coloured Drab would be even greyer, and without such a strong submarginal line."

Thanks for that. I bow to Roy Leverton's expertise.
