This moth stayed quite low in the grass and didn't fly far when disturbed.
No interactions present.
A species that does not survive our winter, but migrates from Europe in variable numbers every year. This is a particularly smart individual, suggesting that it is the offspring from an earlier migrant. The south coast had large numbers arriving earlier this year.
I've not seen any of these in Yorkshire yet. However, they usually show in late August and September when they can be seen in the hundreds.
