Concerning, isn’t it, the apparent decline in moth numbers? So, I was very happy when this beauty found its way in through my wide-open window last night:

Swallow-tailed moth

Not as dramatic as my friend’s recent regaling on the visit of a Soprano pipistrelle bat. And not the best photograph (see the above link for a better shot), but satisfying enough… as was my guide, which informs me it is the Swallow-tailed moth, Ourapteryx sambucaria.
