Just a quick (fragrant) thought...
Reading of a convolvulus hawk-moth being found on a clothes line at Mumbles recently (blog post by Barry Stewart) and of another similar example in Ceredigion, it made me think whether these hawk-moths are attracted by the fragrances often added to modern washing mixtures or conditioners? It is well-known that the convolvulus hawk-moth is attracted to the highly-fragrant tobacco plant and I wonder what `floral enhancement` was added to the Mumbles washing - some homework for Barry perhaps?
