Humming Bird Hawk Moths

....and Painted Ladys are subject to a migrant watch by the Butterfly Conservation Group.   They are after reported sightings of either of these two migrants.  Report your sightings here.

I saw one Humming bird Hawk Moth a few days ago nectaring from the Hydrangea at the front of my house, and saw another two nights back nectaring from a hanging basket outside a pub in the centre of Stratford upon Avon, while I was sipping my own black nectar.

So I have now recorded two.  Just a shame I wasn't able to photograph them.

Let us know if you see either species and record them.

Update: Added hyperlink for recording sight
