I usually try not to repeat thing to often or two close to each other but in this case I make no apologies. This stunning Convolvulus Hawk-moth was trapped overnight in the garden. When it opened its wings it had the brightest body of any that I have seen. This is the fifth one here, one in 2003 was found dead in the greenhouse on Sept 3rd, 2003 and then three in 2006, on Sept 9th and 26th and Oct 10th.
Birding was slow today at Bockhill, but the big excitement was along the road at Pegwell Bay, where the Fan-tailed Warbler (Zitting Cisticola) that put in a brief appearance yesterday, was refound today. I haven't seen any pictures of it yet, I guess it was elusive, they're never that easy to photograph. If it hangs around I could go along for a look, but it is the sort of bird that normally makes for much standing about and only brief views.
