Look what the wind's blown in
High winds require strong flyers, and here's one which arrived on cue. The other week, I recorded my first-ever brunnea form of the Lime Hawk moth; now here is one of the normal type, much more greeny than brown. From their size, I think that both are males, so there will certainly be females out there too. But they seem to have decided to stay at home which is the prudent thing to do in current conditions. Penny and I walked up to the shops yesterday evening and small branches were hurtling down all over the place.
