Chimney sweepers

Not a scarce moth or as stunning as Blomer's but handsome nevertheless and a welcome sight in my garden.  Not a garden species but my garden hardly qualifies as a garden because there are large areas of wild grasses. These were found in a small patch which contains lots of  the foodplant pignut,so this female was even more welcome.  It has hosted a nesting chiffchaff and great news, is sprouting yellow rattle so well on its way to being a flower meadow!
Tregaron could do with some chimneys being swept,the air pollution is appalling on cold, still, winter days.
