Brian and his wife spotted this Small Elephant Hawkmoth along with a Scarlet Tiger moth while walking the path at West Lulworth back on 5/07/20.He tells us they were sheltering from the strong winds that day.

This species usually flies at night and comes to light in good numbers, but freshly emerged individuals can be found in daytime.
