A Moth that seems to have had a good 2020

Evening All,

The Elephant Hawk-moth seems to have had a good year 2020, in my garden anyway.
Previous year just two individuals, 2020 35. Which was a highlight in a very gloomy year.

That picture!!

Amazing. (Also the Elephant Hawkmoth count is pretty impressive, think I only had 2 last year).

Cheers

I didn't trap in the garden as often I have in recent years, yet I also had a record count of 91 Elephant Hawks last year, up from 80 in 2019 and 78 in 2015.
Regards
