Dusky Sallow

Dusky Sallow - yet another moth that is not terribly rare but one that has managed to elude me until now. A really nice moth.
Off Maer Rocks this morning - 2 turnstone, 1 mediterranean gull, 1 common tern, c30+ sandwich tern, 25+ manx shearwater and c30+ common scoter.
The moth trap provided a new species for me - dusky sallow, as well as my first lesser broad-bordered yellow underwing, pale prominent and september thorn of the summer

Shuttle-shaped Dart

Silver Y - one of two in the trap last night.
