    I think it's a Hummingbird Moth, we've had one visit us for the last two years, not seen one this year though.

    Believe this to be a Poplar Hawk Moth - found in the garden and of the same family as the Hummingbird Hawk Moth above

    Had to look that one up:

    At almost 2cm long, the hornet mimic hoverfly is the largest hoverfly species in the UK. As its name suggests, it is an excellent mimic of the hornet, but is harmless to humans. Only a very rare visitor to the country up to the 1940s, it has become more common in Southern England in recent years, and is still spreading northwards, perhaps as a result of climate change. It is particularly prevalent in urban areas. The adults are migratory and the larvae live inside wasps' nests.

    T’would appear some bumble bees have moved into the frame around our pond, the canny little critters. All that honey and I can’t get to it - so close and yet so far.

    Last post for this poor chap, sadly - found him struggling just outside the entrance, bless his overworked little heart.
