First Hummingbird Hawk Moth for 2014
Between 4.35 to 4.40pm today, Saturday 7th June I spotted a superb Hummingbird Hawk Moth flying around the Red Valerian feeding on the nectar of these flowers. The Moth was seen again fleetingly at both 5.10pm and 5.28pm too. Also in the garden the naturally occurring 3 Southern Marsh Orchids are starting to flower in our middle flower bed.
