Hummingbird Hawk-moth

The first Hummingbird Hawk-moth on the islands this year was found above Niffy Bay in the now usual location on the Valerian by the bird hide on 12th June 2015, with two moths present the next day on 13th.

June is the best time in recent years to find this stunning migratory Hawk-moth species on Hilbre Islands LNR and Wirral BC Ranger Matt Thomas (@mattthomas966) captured this brilliant image on 18 June 2015 (see http://www.fromthemuddybanksofthedee.com/?m=1).
