Nothing particularly interesting in the trap this morning. However, I received a packet of Nicotiana seeds with Atropos Magazine last year which we only got round to planting this spring. Well it’s paid off. After going through 85 of the usual suspects in and around the trap, I thought I’d have a look round the garden and Lo & Behold on the wall of the old brick (former) W.C. there was a Convolvulus Hawk-moth. This is my first garden record. This is an annual Autumn immigrant species and the only species found in Britain with a tongue long enough to feed on the Tobacco plants.
