Hi Terry, do you have any other images of the plant you could upload please.

I'm not sure what the moth is doing there, it's probably best to remove that image and re-post it on its own.

Himalayan Honeysuckle

Thanks Chris, it's what you say it is definitely! Bit difficult to get other images as it's in the next door neighbours garden and she's just gone out! But most definitely is Himalayan Honeysuckle. Thanks, I'll tell her when she gets back home.

Swallow-tailed Moth

It's OK Chris, I've id'd the moth, it's definitely a Swallow-tailed Moth! Thanks again.
