Eyed Hawkmoth

 Although the actual number of moths attracted to the moth-trap is still low, the variety of different species is starting to improve.

I was pleased to find my first hawkmoth of the season this week when I uncovered a fresh but rather small male Eyed Hawkmoth (Smerinthus ocellata) resting amongst the egg boxes, together with a few other seasonal favourites.
