Spring Forward

The amazingly warm dry weather of April and early May has meant that several species appeared much earlier then normal. Dragonflies and Damselflies that would normally be emerging around mid May were already out and about at the end of April, as was Argent and Sable moth. Hopefully the warm spell will continue so that the progeny of these early emergers will benefit and hopefully allow for increases in populations of many species.
