This moth featured in a previous post - I think I have now identified it. Introducing Pyrausta Aurata. Big name for a tiny moth.
This beauty was sitting on our kitchen window sill this morning. I believe it is a Gold Swift moth (female).
We get a lot of moths indoors during the summer evenings so expect more photos!

If I have incorrectly identified these please let me know.

I love moths; you can get some truly beautiful ones which are a joy to look at. :)

Love the pics! Thanks for popping by my blog. Those car booty bits were from the Stubbington Bootsale, which is a quite a small one. I also go to the one at bursledon southampton.

Thanks Pixiedust. They are a little too far away for us unfortunately, so I'm going to have to look locally. When my children were in year 6 at school they stayed at the Stubbington Study Centre for a week and absolutely loved it.
