I'm not allowed to say where we went to look for Bedstraw Hawk-moths, but after finding a Hummingbird Hawk-moth feeding on honeysuckle we decided this would be a good spot to look for other hawkmoths. Indeed it proved as before long we found ourselves watching the target Bedstraw Hawk-moth - and then a second and then a third! The area was also visited by a Small Elephant Hawk-moth briefly. Fabulous! Later on 3 White Ermines rounded off the evening's mothing.
