20 July 2020: Dewisk's Plusia - East Malling, Kent

A WhatsApp messagefrom Adam Whitehouse correctly informed me that he had found a moth that wasn't a Silver Y. Too bloody right Adam! That's a Dewick's Plusia you found there... Shortly afterwards I found myself next to Adam and about to start searching the strawberry plants near where the moth was seen, but presumed to have flown away from... Why did I worry? Within a minute of searching Adam refound our quarry - sitting quietly (as moths do) on a strawberry leaf.
