Humming-bird Hawk-moth

A summer visitor migrating from the south of France. Sightings can vary each year, it is more likely to be seen in the south of England.

A day flying species, it hovers like a hummingbird in front of flowers inserting its long tongue into the flower. You can hear it as it beats its wings.
