We were contacted yesterday by Peter Trudgill to say he had a Hawkmoth, found on the steps in his garden.
The photograph below confirms that it is indeed a Convolvulus Hawkmoth in poor condition and looks as though it could have been 'cat assisted' to it's final resting place.
This moth missed us by a matter of a few hundred yards! There must be more out there folks.
There are still some scales near the base of the r/h wind, more visible on the second photo.
