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.

Some caterpillars found at Blawhorn Moss, West Lothian today.

Beautiful Yellow Underwing I think?

Identifications kindly confirmed by Neil Gregory and Roy Leverton. The third thought to be True Lover's Knot by Roy and this seems to be confirmed by the 4th photo at http://www.ukleps.org/Noctuids/2118s.jpg.
