Vestal - an immigrant species.
I ran the moth trap last night and got a nice selection of autumn species. Very few birds today but two water rail beside the Maer long-stay carpark were noteworthy and a close-in guillemot off Exmouth Docks was nice.

Silver Y

Angle Shades - several of these trapped last night.

Black Rustic

Green-brindled Crescent

Pyrausta Despicata?

Red-line Quaker

Silver Y - a second, paler individual

Grey Shoulder-knot

Large Ranunculus
Lesser Yellow Underwing

Double-striped Pug

Above and below - juvenile Shags - Exmouth Docks. I think the above individual has a fishing hook in its foot.
