5 September 2013 - Queendown Warren KWT

Another visit to the fantastic Queendown Warren KWT reserve - with the usual motley crew of half interested colleagues and birders... ;-)

From some considerable distance I saw a large moth fly towards and land near one of the traps. I thought it had to be a hawk-moth or something else big as it was only slightly smaller than a light aircraft. After scrambling towards the trap I relocated the quarry lurking beside a small hawthorn tree - Large Thorn!!!

Further goodies included an Orange Sallow and three, presumed second generation, Waved Blacks.
