"I thought your readers might be interested in a sighting here of a Hummingbird Hawk Moth, busy feeding in my garden. I couldn't take a picture as it was far too quick and never settled on anything. It was fairly obvious what it was as it was hovering in front of flowers and drinking with its tongue. I have not seen one before, and is a fairly rare visitor (it is a migrant) to these parts. There is a survey of these and I have logged my sighting at http://butterfly-conservation.org/sightings/map/6/1087
"I wondered if anyone else had seen one?"
A BBC site has more about this moth here.
