1st June 2014 .. Moth latest

The highlight of the day was during a nice sunny spell at 12.15pm when a Hummingbird Hawkmoth was observed feeding on a clump of Centranthus in the front garden.
No pics but unmistakable.
It stayed for about 5 mins before flitting off to feed on one of the self seeding plants that grow along my street and adjoining gardens.

Centranthus, Red Valerian, a good plant for Hummers that flower before the Buddleia, another good bet for a Hummer
