Bridgend garden overnight 30Oct14 (MV)

A small but varied catch of 14 moths of 11 species.

4 Light Brown Apple moth, 1 Common Marbled Carpet, 1 Spruce Carpet, 1 November moth (agg) which escaped before better attempt at identification,1 Feathered Thorn, 1 Dotted Chestnut (to confirm),1 Black Rustic, 1 Green-brindled Crescent, 1 Yellow-line Quaker, 1 Red-line Quaker and 1 Silver Y.

Here are some photos below including the one which we think looks like Dotted Chestnut, a little worn and there are lots of wavy lines on it which confused us a bit. Any other opinions gratefully received
Dotted Chestnut?

  1. I think your Dotted Chestnut is actually a rather heavily marked Brick.


  2. Ah, of course, thanks George!
