|Eyed Hawkmoth, 14th June (but not in our garden!)|
Not a species I'd ever seen before, but given its proximity to us, I'll be looking forward to the possibility of one with some relish from here on in. Our own haul the last couple of nights has been decent if unspectacular: new species for the year have included on the 14th Silver Y and a couple of micro moths, Prays fraxinella and Celypha striana, and on the 15th Buff-tip and Shears (both new to the garden altogether), with a Brown China-mark also showing up during the day on the 16th. Bright-line Brown-eyes are becoming the default moth in the trap for the time being, which suits me fine as I think they're handsome creatures!
