Bogong Moth season in Sydney 2007

10 Oct 2007. ABC Sydney. (Australian Broadcasting Corporation):

Short report with nice pictures from TV news

Long rambling description from a recent resident. Very "actuality"-style camerawork. She seems rather freaked out by the poor little harmless, helpless Agrotis infusa (CSIRO).
