Barred Chestnut - first of the autumn

The last couple of days the moth trap has been swamped with Large Yellow-Underwing making it quite difficult to pick out any other species but I have caught a couple of Barred Chestnut. It's reasonably widely distributed in the gritstone moors but scarce in other areas of Derbyshire, the adult is on the wing August - September so should get one or two more.
