Finemere Wood, Bucks

I ran a couple of MV lights in Finemere Wood last night but ended up with more hornets than moths.  Two species new for the year, though, were nice fresh examples of Pine Carpet and Figure of Eight.

Back at home I had another varied selection of autumn moths with the Lunar Underwing total breaking the hundred barrier for the first time this season (120 counted).  However there were no migrants apart from a solitary Silver Y and the only species new for the year was a Red-line Quaker.
