I just noticed the date that

I just noticed the date that the caterpillar was supposed to have been observed. Is that correct? January would be a very unusual date to see an Elephant Hawk-moth feeding (normal would be mid to late summer). The vegetation in the picture doesn't look very wintery either (as far as one can tell!) so I'm wondering if you made a mistake with the date?
Cheers
