National Moth Night - Update

Northern Rustic

One moth that I wasn't sure of was this tatty looking object. I thought it was a Northern Rustic, but since the only colony in the South East of England is at Folkestone Warren, I thought it was worth getting the picture checked out. I've got the answer back today and (for a change) I was right, and it is the first that I've caught here. The question is, has it wandered along the coast or is there a population nearer?
