Looks like a Crescent Striped moth, but found in the heart of Surrey, miles from any salty estuary, so ID welcome.

Dotted Clay

Thanks for this - I agree. Not seen any yet this year and this one has far more pronounced bars than any previously. I must start getting used to the huge variation in some noctuids. Only had the trap out a few times this summer..... clearly I need more practice (and not rushing)
