After all my catty remarks about yellow underwings, I am pleased to salute this one. It looks as if it's discovered a new way of sailboarding. On the downside, it's probably done something disastrous to its wing-folding mechanism, but it managed to fly away after the photograph at the usual jinking pace. Other arrivals set me wondering about whether moths have a secret army. I mean, look at the badges of rank on the pic below. The Silver Y must be a sergeant and the micro moth - is it one of the Crambinae grass moths? - a lance-corporal. The fly is a squaddie and yesterday's Gold Spot recently graduated from Sandhurst, I am sure.
