Elm Bent-wing Bucculatrix albedinella - approximately 9mm in length but a smart little thing and a new species for me.

Maiden's Blush - very little blush on this slightly tatty one but a great moth.

Broad-bodied Chaser (male).

Broad-bodied Chaser (female).

Little Emerald - haven't seen one of these for years but not an uncommon moth.

Inlaid Grass-veneer Crambus pascuella.

Pebble Hook-tip

Treble Lines - another, more swarthy form, that I don't recall seeing before - compare with photo below.

Ribwort Slender Aspilapteryx tringipennella

Mottled Pug

Common Pug

Marbled Conch Eupoecilia angustana

Dark-barred Tortrix Syndemis musculana

Juvenile Dartford Warbler.

Large Long-horn Nematopogon swammerdamella.

Male Stonechat - one of the many 'rubicola' or 'continental types on the pebbled heaths displaying massive white collar, large unmarked white rump (with limited streaking on upper-tail coverts) and a huge amount of white in the wing coverts.

Fiery orange on the breast but white from the belly intrudes on to the centre of the breast - same individual below.

A second male 'rubicola' type. This type predominates on the commons. Below a more typical 'hibernans' type. Some limited white in the rump of this one.
