Description:

humming bird hawkmoths around in the summer but this clearly isn't one. Unhelpfully on an apple tree but wondered Poplar??? Doesn't look right for that either :(( Approx 5cm long

Eyed Hawk-moth

seems like a better bet to me. The colouration looks about right and their foodplants are willows, sallows and APPLES.
