    Hi Peter. Looks like you and Marilyn had a successful first night for the City of Melbourne's 'Urban Bioblitz'. Who would have thought that such an array of moths would still call Fitzroy Gardens their home. You would think with all the development, light pollution and vehicular hazards they would have a tenuous hold at best. I guess it proves how resilient they may be if given a chance...
