Quality, not quantity

Actually, today's catch was fairly numerous by recent standards: 16 moths, though only of four species - one of them a handsome Pale Prominent, which is another example of an apparently rather early appearance. The same was true of several moths in our rather scanty catches last week: all of Least Black Arches (23rd April), Orange Footman (24th) and our favourite, the first Poplar Hawkmoth of the year (24th) are 'officially' supposed to emerge in May. Steve and Xander Goddard.
