Oleander hawkmoth

This is the first known record of Oleander hawkmoth in VC46. It was found between Cardigan and Llechryd in a polytunnel on the 21st October, by Clive Wychwood. His photo shows that the moth was a bit worn but it could have travelled some distance to get to Ceredigion. Many thanks to Clive for sending in the record and the photograph.

  1. I think we all dream of finding something so pretty and exotic as that.
