Garden moths update

Just when we thought the weather was warming up ...

Not much to get excited about in the traps.
The first Privet Hawk-moth arrived on the 5th and the highlights for yesterday/last night was a Hobby that hurtled through just above roof-top height, giving good views of the face pattern as it flew towards the afternoon sun and a couple of year firsts for the moth traps.
