Hummingbird Hawk-moth at Pwll

Two interesting sightings were made by Veronica Haines at Pwll, Llanelli yesterday (Fri 18/8) - a hummingbird hawk-moth resting on gorse and the impressive `hornet mimic` hoverfly Volucella zonaria, on Buddleja by the `fishing lakes`.

                      Above: Veronica`s first-class photos of the `hummer` and the Volucella.

Thanks to Veronica for getting in touch. On the moth front, the weather is set to (hopefully) improve mid-week, so perhaps we can resume profitable moth trapping!
