Thorn Bird.....25/04

Early Thorn (female) Streamer
Mompha subbistrigella
The count was low but the variety was fair as the temperatures continue to rise. It was nice to see a 1st female Early Thorn, 1 of the 2 caught. The micro was found in the house and is another new 1 for the list. I also put a battery trap out at Broom GP, but only caught 4 moths-
