The Wild West!
A wildlife diary of the western Isle Of Wight's beautiful countryside!

Chandos Road, Ampthill
Having had a small elephant hawkmoth (
) in the moth-trap a few days ago, I was really pleased to find an elephant hawkmoth (
) clinging to the sides this morning.
Other moths included large nutmeg, pale-shouldered brocade, dark arches, treble lines, heart-and-dart, and a beautiful ruby tiger, and there were also 2 cockchafers (scarey!).
...oh, and a male
hoverfly on the cups' cupboard in the kitchen!
