27 Feb I'm thrilled to say I've just seen a Hummingbird Hawk-moth in our garden, feeding on Viburnum.  It's by months my earliest ever sighting, and does this mean they, like V atalanta, can survive our winters, or has it come up from Spain with the warm air? (They can overwinter successfully in the UK if it is a relatively mild one (like the one we have just had). It could also be a migrant however coming in with the Painted ladies and other migrant moths recently. Either is possible.  Neil Sherman) Newton   t Dean Morley
