Grass Emerald and Buff Tip Moths

Grass Emerald, Pseudoterpna pruinata


I'm Looking at you.

Do you know what Moth this is? If so, leave a comment at the bottom of this blog, please.

wingspan about 40mm.

Buff Tip, Xestia xanthographa
I found this Buff Tip on my plant sprayer, in the kitchen window, one morning. I never understand how the top (face) works. Just have a look at this woolly bit.
It crawled into a small medicine tub and so I put it out.

When I returned from collecting the Irish Times in my local village shop, it had moved into a vertical posiition. its texture really looks as if the Moth has been knitted.

Buff Ermine, Spilosoma lubricipeda

But what is this? or is it a 2nd generation which has not been "formed" perfectly? It also misses the 'feathers on the antennae. (female?)

Jackdaw, Corvus monedula

Magpie, Pica pica.
