Dusky-lemon Sallow - a first for the farmlands

The mild night produced the goods last night with another first for the farmlands- a Dusky-lemon Sallow (cheers Billy for confirmation). A nice selection of other autumn moths including two firsts for year Yellow-lined Quaker and Pine Grey Carpet with Black Rustics, Beaded Chestnuts and the usual fair. 

I know I really should be birding as its mid-October but it's hectic at work and I'm off to the Azores tomorrow so will be back on the job soon.
