|Elephant Hawk-moth - pupa|
In 2012 a Longhorn moth was seen on the cuckoo flower and again the following Spring. This year's visitor has lost half an antenna and has settled on the flower of a forget-me-not and was quite easy to photograph. I am still not entirely convinced that it is Cauchas rumifitrella but the other longhhorn species seem to be more clearly marked.
The mercury vapour light has been switched on again as the temperature is forecast to be around 10 degrees. Hopefully there will be more to report tomorrow.
