Hummingbird hawk moth in Cilycwm

After Sam's blog entry and seeing him last week I've been looking out for a HHM on my neighbour's valerian and got a result this evening as we were pulling up in the car and there was one feeding on a small patch of valerian at the front of his house!

Trapped last night and got quite good numbers as it clouded over during the night. FFY for me were brussels lace, broom moth and bright-line brown-eye. I have photos to put up later and need some help with some clays and micros.

Out at Llety Wen SSSI  in Cwmdu today - hoping for a forester but no luck. Amazing there though - fantastic display of greater butterfly orchids.
