More Hornets at Resolven

Rob Colley took this lovely image of a Hornet from Jenny’s moth catch this week. Jenny has now trapped this species on seven occasions in their Resolven garden, with a maximum of 7 trapped on 16th August. Please report if you too see this species, which appears to be a recent colonist.
Rob also photographed this Hummingbird Hawk-moth at Pontneddfechan at dusk on Buddleia. These seem to be quite scarce this year so please do report any sightings.

Eddie and Manja Hunter text me to say they saw a Hornet 'munching on an apple' in their Glyn-neath garden today. There was also one there a few days previously.
