Prochoreutis sehestediana or myllerana. One of the two but not sure which one. I'm tempted to go myllerana as the white dusting appears to cover less than half the width of the forewing. Any helpful comments welcome.

Almost bird-less on Orcombe this afternoon. A little bit better yesterday with 7 Tree Pipits, 6+ Grey Wagtails, 7+ Yellow Wagtails, 3 'alba' wagtails, 7 Meadow Pipits, 4 Chiffchaffs, 4 Blackcaps, 1 Wheatear, 4 House Martins, 1 Whitethroat, c50+ Swallows and a Sedge Warbler logged.

The incomparable Olive-tree Pearl. A couple Silver Ys were the only other immigrants.

The incomparable Burnished Brass!

Centre-barred Sallow. Mostly common species again last night with Dusky Thorn, Light Emerald, Cypress Pug, Angle Shades, Flounced Rustic, Yellow Shell,  and Common Wainscot amongst the even more regular stuff.
