Dazed and Confused

In the moth trap last night was this little puzzler - on first views seemed to be The Confused, but on closer inspection it has to be the 'obscura' form of Dusky Brocade (a photo of Confused appears here, note the much straighter leading edge to the forewings).
On the bird front a House Martin was knocking around Scatness for most of the day.

2G, 2B.
Just a Too Good this time - this website defies description and is bloody hilarious - - enjoy !

This guy makes the rest of us look good! I wonder how many rare birds can you confuse a Reed Bunting for anyway?

Dougie - just look at the requests for ID on Bird Forum to work that oen out! Un-f*cking - beleivable. Don't people know how to work out birds for themselves these days or is it just easier to post a picture of a Linnet and say whats this?
