Yellow Shell Moth

Thanks to Mrs. Garner, who sent in this nice picture of the Yellow Shell Moth (Camptogramma bilineata) :

DSC00796 (1)

The wavy shell-like markings which give this widespread moth its name are clearly visible in the image.  The photo was taken on the threatened Radford Bridge Allotment site in Wollaton, which I have featured before.  There is still hope that the development which is jeopardising the site can be prevented…
