1 Noctua pronuba.
No pictures taken.

I say “the” Red Admiral, because I’m assuming it is the one that I released there on July 4, and which Jeff Gaskin presumably saw on July 9. The person who photographed it told me that the Red Admiral was sitting on one of the pale patches on the Mount Tolmie reservoir. I have remarked before (only semi-seriously) that the hill-topping nymphalids on the reservoir prefer to sit on the pale patches. Maybe it is actually true!
