Chandos Road, Ampthill

Having had a small elephant hawkmoth (Deilephila porcellus) in the moth-trap a few days ago, I was really pleased to find an elephant hawkmoth (Deilephila elpenor) 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 Epistrope eligans hoverfly on the cups' cupboard in the kitchen!
