Cogito ergo sum
Two new ones in the garden trap this morning - both common though:

1. Gold Spot
2. Orange Swift

Very poor record shots of these below - due to poor light and drizzle at ~5am.

Also had 2 Poplar Hawk Moths amongst others.

Can anyone help me?

Saw this caterpillar at Middleton Lakes (I know I know, not Worcs, but it's a great thread this one) and I'm struggling to ID it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance all!:t:
