Convulvulus HM...bit like buses!

Well wouldn't you know it, you get your first one and then two come along! Another visit by Convolvulus Hawkmoth last night the first was actually onthe washing line post at around midnight when she was duely potted, the second, well he was in the trap this morning, and being a cool start to the day, both were docile enough to be moved without disappearing immediately. Also taken over night was a Pale Mottled Willow (who did disappear immediately!) and a Blair's Shoulder-Knot ( not back pain suffered by a P.M!) GYL 175

The females are larger than the malesand the markings are not as heavy.

Well done on another 2 Andy, you lucky so & so.

Pale Mottled Willows are infamous for doing a runner before allowing a shot.
