Orange Underwing in garden

Great day in the garden once the sun came out midday. Tons of insects including this incredible Orange Underwing moth. Tied to birch, it's a dayflying species I've only ever seen at good birch woodland around here. The four birches in front of the house must be just enough.

Also 7 Bee Flies, Brimstone, Small Tortoiseshell and loads of bees. Wood Mice, Bank Voles, Frogs, Siskin, Red Kites, etc.
