Another day in Bacton and at least 8 (eight) more Hummingbird Hawk Moths there really is an unbelievable amount in/passing through this garden managed another shot. Plus another little brown job, James could you please direct be to a good moth book as I really struggle to find these in mine.


  1. The moth is indeed a Riband Wave. I would strongly recommend the book I use, "Concise Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland" by Martin Townsend and Paul Waring. It has all the British macros in, all life size and drawn in the position that they typically rest in. Its about £12-13, and is in most bookshops and CLey visitors centre. There is a £30 version of it with more text and caterpillars, but the concise guide is more than adequate.
