Barred Red

Just one moth of interest in our Fairlight trap yesterday, a Barred Red. As the name suggests this is often red, but can be green also. This one is a dull grey-green, but last year I caught a bright green one on Sept 5, also pictured. These dates are interesting as The Book [Waring et al] says the flight period is mid June-early August
