Yes I was aware of that, just pointing out the resemblance, if you had a shot of this bird, through bushes and showing just the head?

I think it's a Little Auk but it does seem to be looking to the adult Razorbill as a chick would?

Are Razorbills so small when they set off?

I've looked again more closely, it is a confusing moth

A couple of small details are as illustrated for KG in Waring but I have seen one with such a big or ragged, pale patch at the wing base.

Dark Arches? Russia

I have doubts that this is Dark Arches due to the in filled Kidney mark and the deep outline to the oval but struggling for any other ideas as to ID?

Any suggestions gratefully received and duly...

Mine is only a passive interest, probably stems from all the airfix kits I built as a kid but I do get excited by a nice bit of military kit.

Here in St Petersburg, Russia, we have Navy day in July...

The bulk (possibly all?) of the insects you see away from water, flying around trees and gardens, are Migrant Hawkers, at least in Nottingham they are.

An hour in the fridge makes them docile for photography, most 'moth-er's' do it. It does no harm, the insect soon warms up and is then released.

I do it (and so do others) with Dragonflies too.
