The warm weather has been bringing some top quality moths to the garden in the past week. Lilac Beauty is probably the best and only the second record here as is The Drinker. There have been a couple of Heart & Clubs, which aren't that usual either (note the feathered antennae except for about the last quarter, this and dark hindwing separate it from Heart & Dart or Turnip Moth).
Lime Hawk-moth used to be the most frequent hawk-moth in the garden but in recent years has been absent or down to a single record so that's pretty scarce too these days.
