Isn't the internet great

Just happened to notice a small brown moth resting on the outside of the window it looked quite exotic with feather like antenna more akin to a bat, as I had no idea what it was I looked it up on the trusty internet and found that it is a Rusty Tussock Moth or Vapoura, not rare but interesting all the same.

    I don't know how I managed without it Barryimage

    If you get stuck with a moth and nobody here can ID it. 

    Try http://ukmoths.org.uk/

    Their Facebook page is very active and I got an ID in 10mins.
