Red Sword-grass

I caught this moth last night giving a remarkably good impression of a dead twig. The Red Sword-grass has two flight seasons, the main one in September to November and then some adults overwinter and re-emerge in March to June. This is just the third record for Islay (with none for Jura or Colonsay), the previous two being in 1999 and 2013.
