More migrant moths

Part of last nights catch including Hummingbird Hawkmoth (middle right) and Poplar Hawkmoth (top left).

This Hummer was the first I have ever caught in a light trap (this one attracted to a 15w actinic). Presumably one of the three thats been hanging around the garden in recent days.

This was a different Hummer feeding in the garden whilst the 'trapped' moth was still roosting up on the kitchen wall.

This one of four Small Mottled Willows caught in the last two days, and my ninth for the year. Also another Dark Sword-grass caught yesterday. Click here for more migrant moths.
