Felinfoel Hummers - latest news.
Paul Sperinck sent this photo of the now-pupated hummingbird hawk-moth caterpillars, which he reared from eggs laid on bedstraw in his Felinfoel (Llanelli) garden where he`d previously spotted an adult ovipositing. With a bit of luck, we`ll have some adults soon, and with more luck, he will have pointed them in my direction, as I`ve not seen one this year and with a similar absence of sightings last year. The weather may be more suitable for moth trapping later this week, with `winds from the Azores` suggested. Check the weather forecast and trap if you can.
