What a surprise!!

I was in the garden yesterday and something shot passed my eye line into the honeysuckle and I saw it hoovering!! I thought blimey that looked like a very small hummingbird but it can't be it had to be a moth, it just hoovered from plant to plant. Searched the net and found it's called 'The Hummingbird Hawk Moth" Have any of you seen one?

Just saw our nature expert in our village and he said he didn't see one last year but did the year before, it depends how warm it is how far north they migrate!
