With the Bedstraw Caterpillars shown in a previous post thriving under the tender care of the Warden, and growing to enormous size to the delight of visitors to the Observatory, this Pine Hawk Moth Caterpillar was discovered in the vegetation near the moth trap.

The end of August and start of September has seen a few scarcities at the Observatory, with an elusive Red-backed Shrike in the dunes, a fly-through Honey Buzzard and best of all 2 Wrynecks, with a long-staying bird in the NWT dunes and another ringed yesterday (2nd September), the 37th ringed at the observatory in its history and the 3rd consecutive year one has been trapped.
