Beautiful Golden Y and Large Yellow Underwing
With my trap out of action (burnt out ballast unit) I have had to wait and let the moths come to me. As it happens, I didn't have to wait too long. The BGY turned up on the window in the kitchen and the LYU flew in through an open door from the hay meadow we think of as a lawn.
The LYU is sometimes abundant here and suffers badly in the hay making season. I think I have only seen the BGY three times before
