News From Flight Arrivals
This Humming-bird Hawk-moth appeared in flight in the Atropos office on the 20th February then settled high up in the entrance. We think it has hibernated there and is likely to be the same insect which appeared indoors last November and was lost before it could be released.
For all the latest news of migrant insects visit Flight Arrivals.
