Another Hawkmoth scare

There was a late House Martin over the Front Street this morning, and 2 Sparrowhawks there this evening hunting the Pied Wagtails going to roost.

I remember last October I had a hawkmoth scare when a friend said they had taken a photograph of a Hawkmoth. After the panic I realised they had taken the photograph in Turkey. Disappointment. Well I had another hawkmoth scare today when a neighbour said there was a Hawkmoth on the wall. It's got to be a Convolvulus at this time of year, surely or even a Death's-head, panic again. Then I saw the very nice but common Angle Shades moth sitting there. Was it smiling? .. I sort of did, despite another disappointment.

A nice moth but not a Hawkmoth
