Lee Mount - 23rd May

A very nice moth in the actinic trap this morning. I put it in the Buddleia bush and it's still there tonight, not moved all day. Only the second one I've had at this location but the previous one did not hang around !. An amazing looking moth.

Poplar Hawkmoth
 
 Also this moth (including one of the underside) not yet identified...though I initially thought maybe Spruce Carpet type ??

Thanks Andy. A new one for me though I nearly gave it up after trawling the books. I guess the three marks near the wing tip are a good pointer.
