A rare moth has returned to Cornwall for the first time in more than ten years, wildlife charity Butterfly Conservation can reveal.

A caterpillar of the elusive Narrow-bordered Bee Hawk-moth was found on Goss Moor National Nature Reserve near Victoria in late June.

The discovery is confirmation the moth is breeding in the county again and is the first record of the species in Cornwall since 2008, when the moth was seen on Bodmin Moor. MORE
