West Hill Road Moths

Small Elephant Hawkmoth

A warm, still night produced lots of moths in the roof-top trap this morning (32spp. of macro). Highlight being this small elephant hawkmoth, which is the first of this species I’ve had here. Also three elephant hawkmoth, two L-album wainscot, two cypress carpet, a small waved umber, pretty chalk carpet and a Haworth’s pug. The last three species being traveller’s joy (wild clematis) feeders. The only migrant was a silver y.
