Ron,
Your micro is Hedya Sp. I would guess H. nubiferana. They are all superficially similar, the diagnostic feature tends to be the position/number of dark spots just beyond the basal fascia (dark bit at the base of the wing)
I was at the now defunct coast road south of Lendalfoot this afternoon (poaching your manor!) 30+ Six Spot Burnet. Loads of Common Blue, Ringlet, Small Copper and Fritilliarys that from a distance I couldn't do down to species. Also what appeared to be a large bright rufous coloured Macro in the distance which I failed to find in the flesh having scrambled a scree at some risk to life and limb!
All in all nice bit of botanically diverse semi maritime habitat that I reckon could produce worthwhile records if worked thoroughly...... Over to you!

Nick.

All,
Per Ian's prediction last night,(6/vi/2013) was the best of the year so far, 50 specimens representing 23 species of Macro's (nothing of interest) not to mention a dozen or so Micros, some yet to be I.D.'d. Two of interest that I'm sure of, are Acleris bergmanniana (once before here, viii/2012) and Platyptilia isodactylus,(Hoary Plume) no seen here before.

Hi Ron,

perhaps your starling is a juvenile with the condition of leucism where the colour comes through much paler than usual. I stayed in Aberdeen a while back and young starling stayed around our house which looked just like the one in your picture. When it moulted into adult plumage it was a very unusual brassy metallic colour.

Alistair.
