Death's Head talk

Chris Powles, who discovered a Death's Head Hawk caterpillar and three pupae in Kirtlington earlier this year, as reported by Martin Townsend on the blog, would be very pleased if anyone would like to go to a talk on the subject, including subsequent developments which saw three adult insects hatch. The date and venue is Bonfire Night, 5 November, at 7.45pm at St Mary's church, Kirtlington, under the auspices of Kirtlington Wildlife and Conservation Society and Sustainable Kirtlington. Julian Howe who runs a trap in next-door Bletchingdon will give a talk and Chris Powles will show a film of one of the moths. You can also see this splendid insect on his YouTube clip here. Thanks to him for the photo above too.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon
