Some April Moths

Plenty of mothing happened during most of April with the still and reasonably warm nights. All that might change if we receive the rain being 'promised'. We need it badly. To date, I have recorded just 1mm for the month.

Here are a few of the April moths.

More can be found at Moths of Great Western.
