Convolvulous Hawk-moth Strumpshaw RSPB

An unexpected surprise, found upside down on the path next to the railway line!

Other highlights from the reserve included a peak count of 25 Willow Emeralds (Norfolk record?) the lingering juvenile Osprey, several large parties of Bearded Tits (50+) and almost daily Otter sightings. The Baillons Crake put in a brief showing at Rainham Marshes and the Short billed Dowitcher gave obliging views at Lodmoor.
