Hill-topping Moth

Whilst looking for the (then absent) Snow Buntings at the summit of North Hill, Malvern yesterday afternoon at 1,200 feet, the last thing I was expecting to see was a close fly-by Hummingbird Hawk-moth zipping south. FFY as well! Wonder if there are any November records for VC 37?  Have about 100+ tiny Pearly Underwing larvae at moment - let me know if anybody wants some to rear through on Dandelion, Dock, Cabbage etc.

  1. Was it you we met yesterday afternoon at the rowans while we were failing to find Snow Buntings, Ring Ouzel and now Humming-bird Hawk! No Humming-bird records this late in October in vc36. Latest in 1983 Oct 20th.
