A mysterious moth caught the attention of one Crow reader in Royston this week.
Jenny Huby saw a large hummingbird hawk moth two days in a row in her Newman Avenue garden.
She said: “These might be very common in this area but I’ve lived around here for many years and not seen one before.”
Don Shewan, chair of Royston Wildlife Group, told the Crow: “It is a hummingbird hawk moth.
“Although we don’t see many, these are not uncommon and it is always a treat to see them in your garden. The person taking it must have been delighted.
“There are other much larger moths to be found in Royston such as the privet hawk moth. Again, very impressive.”
