If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

Willow Beauty, Dipleurina lacustrata and probably Svensson's Copper Underwing.

Thanks Mark.

I did wonder about copperwing, but unfortunately I didn't get a look at the hindwing. Townsend & Lewington don't mention Scotland at all for Svensson's, but I guess the distribution info is a wee bit out of date now. I didn't really have a scooby about the other two.
