Pink Elephants on Parade!

Finally, my first Hawkmoth of the year in the trap yesterday, this lovely Elephant Hawkmoth! As everone else has said, presumably due to the bad weather things have been somewhat slow this year. I had about 20 moths last night and will post the results of my catch in the next few days.


  1. Nice one Steve, I'm miserable now I've not had any hawkmoths so far this year!

  2. Had quite a few Poplars, but no Elephants yet (or any other Hawkmoths). We did have elephant caterpillars in the woodlands here last September, so fingers crossed we will get them soon.
