Hummingbird Hawkmoth

Observation - Hummingbird Hawkmoth - Global. Description: Noticed large insect behaving oddly on Buddleia bush from about 20ft away, on the outskirts of Newport S Wales, on a bright warm morning. On getting to within 3 feet, it seemed very much to me to be a Hummingbird Hawkmoth. Thought these were only rarely

Noticed large insect behaving "oddly" on Buddleia bush from about 20ft away, on the outskirts of Newport S Wales, on a bright warm morning. On getting to within 3 feet, it seemed very much to me to be a Hummingbird Hawkmoth. Thought these were only rarely found in SE England, but RSPB site suggests more widely spread at this time of year - not sure what else it could have been, but as luck would have it - no camera.
