I wash my bird bath out quit often as it gets quite mucky looking with them all washing in there. Then they drink their own bath water

They are enormous Forester but this pic is from last year and I can't remember whose hand that is which doesn't help in assessing size.

Good idea Fishy

Hi Bamboogie, they breed themselves but we do try and provide a good habitat for all these creatures. Catching the privet HM emerging was luck but we run moth traps every few weeks and most of the photos are taken then. Mostly by OH as my camera skills are deficient

We were very lucky Fishy, it had pupated in the soil and we were right there when it emerged. It took a few minutes to work out what we were looking at.
