More Moths - and Butterflies

I set up my moth trap on Friday evening, to be rewarded in the morning with this superb Oak Beauty - what a stunner, and at 3 cm long, an impressive moth.

Also new in the trap were these two delicate and subtle Common Quakers

Later in the superb fine day was a very dark Common Buzzard,  and a glistening white Little Egret over the garden - at the time I was planting early spuds so no camera to hand. Then, in the early afternoon, a Comma and a Red Admiral , and a buff-tailed Bumble Bee to enjoy
