Hawkmoth

If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

We think this very large moth is a Convolvulus Hawkmoth. Our neighbours found it in their garden in Perthshire. Date seen 27th August 2009. Can you confirm or deny? Thanks.

Yes it is, great moth.

If you can submit it to your moth recorder (see http://www.angleps.com/County%20Moth%20Recorder%20List%20(Vice-county%20format).pdf) that would be good, otherwise if you can provide a grid reference or postcode then we can make sure it gets recorded.
