I can't believe it - another Convolvulus Hawk
I thought I would put the trap out in the garden tonight as there seemed to be some warm airflow coming up from Europe, but the clear skies and cooling temperatures made me think it might not be very productive. However, a quick check of the trap at 22:00 looked very thin, virtually nothing showing in or on the trap, until I checked the wall near the trap and there was another Convolvulus Hawk-moth (Agrius convolvuli). Definitely not the same one I had 10 days ago. I can't believe it!
