Caroline tells us on 14/05/20 this was the first Hawkmoth she has ever trapped in her Oakford Fitzpaine garden.

Always so exciting to find one of these beautiful large hawkmoths when you do a moth trap.

This species is resident and common and is the most widely distributed and frequent hawkmoth found in the British Isles from May – August, sometimes in September in the south.
