Red Underwings

After finishing my Terrapin capture duties I set off home only to see these two roosting Red Underwings about 10 + 15 feet high up on Crowther Bridge as viewed from the towpath. I gave one a nudge with a stick to see if it would flash it's brilliant red underwings but it just took of and landed in almost the same spot. Super moths and a first for myself.

Another new one for the Site List - They might be still around at weekend, they are known to come to light, so something to look out for Sat night.
