Hornet exuvia

My only luck so far this year in finding the Hornet moth has been just a quick sighting of one flying around a Black Poplar in the yard at `Dayla`, Aston Clinton, but i couldn't get a picture. I've found 5 pupal shells (exuviae) sticking out of the exit holes at the base of Poplars, 3 at Broughton and 2 at Aston Clinton, but the moths have eluded me so far!  Dave Maunder

Exuvia, and plenty of exit holes from previous years
