I found this moth in my garden in hertfordshire but haven't found a possitive id anywhere.
I have tried to take the best photos i can.
Could someone please identify this for me, thanks.
I don't claim any great expertise so will bow to anyone's better knowledge, but it looks very like a Large Yellow Underwing ... here's another photo - http://www.pawsforwildlife.co.uk/large_yellow_underwing.php. Did you see it with the wings unfolded? If it is this species the hidden part would be a striking orange-yellow colour - http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/species/large-yellow-underwing.
ah yes i forgot to mention the orange hindwings so it could well be this moth. thanks for your help!
i looked into the Large Yellow Underwing and found this... http://tinyurl.com/bn2whdv it looks the pretty much exactly like it
