25 December moths in the trap this morning!

This morning there were 25 December moths in my trap – I’ve never seen that many before! The milder weather has certainly brought the moths out.

    Wonderful! Perhaps you could write a bit more on them each time for those of us who are not experts but have a thing for moths. I like to tweet up some of your posts, so it would be nice for the casual visitor to get the moth bio.
