Large Moths in Follyfield !

I returned from a walk last week to see what at first sight appeared to be some leaves attached to the top of my fence.

On closer inspection I found two moths sharing an intimate moment. Bearing mind that the fence post is four inches across, these moths had a wing span of at least three inches.

Having spoken to Steve and Lynn Davis it would seem that they are most likely to be the Poplar Hawk Moths. Other Hawk Moths have been seen in the village before.
