and following on from Tony’s migration post below, I think this is one. Nice to celebrate with Mick when he caught this big mama in my old trap in his Easington garden last week:

    Hi Martin – Just goes to show that Migrant Moths can turn up anywhere and needless to say the east coast, especially Spurn, has a fantastic track record of turning up migrant moths & butterflies. There has been an influx recently of Convolvulus Hawkmoths. The first one I caught nearly wrecked the trap when it came bombing into the light!! Stunning creatures..
