There were so many Jersey tiger moths fluttering around in Church Walk on my way home from work today. At one point there were three on a small area of one garden wall, but one took off just as I was about to click the shutter, so here are two on the left! Best shot of an individual one is below:

I found this little tortrix moth (left) in my house later as well. First thought is that it is a light brown apple moth, although the markings are a bit unfamiliar. Not totally sure what this is really ...

I also racked up my 8th ladybird species of the year with this nice 22-spot. They are smaller than the familiar read-and-black varieties, about the same size and colour as the common 14-spot, but with a different pattern of markings.
