I've never seen the moth, I've only seen one Humming Bird Hawk Moth they don't often come this far North

I saw these caterpillars a few times in Cornwall (they seemed to be very fond of my mum's fuchsias!) but never the moth itself. Other hawkmoths visited my London garden occasionally or were attracted to pub terrace lights and so on.
