A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
With yours, around 20 records.
Hi Adam - i had one here in Aylesbury back on the 22nd July - my first ever.
I had my first in the garden at Westcott last year and I don't think it will have been overlooked previously even though it is a rather plain-looking species. Sounds like it might be on the up, like other moths which rely on bees (for example, Aphomia sociella has had a phenomenal year here). Although they don't need bees for their larval stage, Death's-head Hawk-moths often raid bees nests for honey so lets hope that species does equally as well!!
