Another Vestal

To add to the list of recent sightings, this rather washed-out Vestal was flying across a grass field at Windmill Hill, just south of Waddesdon, today. First one I've seen for quite a long time.

  1. You can see Windmill Hill from our house but I haven't had a Vestal in the garden yet this year! Maybe tonight - the washing has been left out on the line too (a well-known attractant of interesting hawk-moths).

  2. Had 2 Vestals attracted to my garden trap last night, although they were not in the trap but sitting on the damp grass next to the trap. They would have been quite easy to miss if I hadn't been giving the grass a good scrutiny.
