When I looked at the second picture I was surprised to see there were three two, with a second bird, a duller first winter or female, in front of the male. And then a second look showed that the bird behind was also a Brambling.
This year I haven't see a single Humming-bird Hawk-moth in the garden so it was a surprise to find one quietly resting on the side of my MV trap this morning. They look quite different at rest.
It conveniently perched on a paint brush so that I could photo the underside of it. Despite being much plainer looking when they are not flying, they are a fascinating species. There are sill some flowers around in the garden so I still have some hope of finding it hovering in the next couple of days.
