WA5606 : Silver Y moth by coastal path

Silver Y moth by coastal path
Silver Y moths are a migratory species. Although they are common throughout the UK, they are particularly noticeable during migration in spring and autumn. This one is facing downwards with the wings extended downwards as well. It is showing the distinctive 'Y' mark at near centre of the leading edge of the forewing. This posture would be a good camouflage. I would not have noticed it had it not been moving.
