Rosy Rustic

Not Bordered Sallow, but Rosy Rustic, a pale version of this attractive moth. They never seem very rosy!

Yep - I'd (mis)identified

Yep - I'd (mis)identified this from memory and I realised my mistake when I checked the at book at home. You corrected me quicker than I could myself! This is a lot paler than the Rosy Rustics I usually see, and also out pretty early, so that's my excuse!
