Night shift at Kenfig Industrial Estate 06/09/14
A second generation [?] adult Poplar Hawkmoth was attracted and resting to a lighted window at the RPC-Tedeco factory . As far as I can see on mapmate this is the latest record for an adult of this species in Glamorgan, with larva more commonly recorded at this time of year. Second generation records are not that common in Glamorgan, so the good weather in the early summer may have been the reason. Other supporting species included the more seasonal Feathered Gothic, Neglected Rustic an Rosy Rustic.
