I had no idea that escaped stick insects are managing to survive in southern Britain, but apparently so, until the next really cold winter at least: http://www.uksafari.com/stickinsects.htm

This species is often kept in schools and by children as pets. Being embarrassingly prolific, surplus insects are often discarded in gardens and hedgerows to 'fend for themselves'. C. morosus cannot survive even the mildest winter and all are doomed. There are several species of New Zealand phasmids which have become naturalised in SW England. See http://phasmid-study-group.org/content/Naturalised-British-Stick-Insects...
Many thanks for your input on this Malcolm, and interesting to hear some tougher NZ species are naturalised in the SW.
