Elephant Hawkmoth

Square-spot Rustic

Double Square-spot

Small Emerald

Heart and Dart - one of the most common moths trapped. This is a typical individual but if you look hard at them you often find individuals with atypical or aberrant markings. The individual below has an unusual and rather attractive extra bright bronze tinge that I don't recall seeing before. I've probably just overlooked them though.
