Don't think so. We had one fly around the lounge on Sunday.

They don't usually survive the winter but this winter has been very mild. Perhaps we won't need to wait for the summer visitors

Richard Jones
Hummingbird hawks are regular migrants, so their appearance has more to do with weather, climate and temperature in Europe and North Africa, as well as here. Received wisdom has it that they do not survive British winters, but...who knows these days. The likelihood is that the very mild winter we've had in the south of England probably means that some could quite easily have overwintered successfully here.

What could I grow to encourage Hummingbird moths or am I in the wrong part of the country to attract them? (600m up a mountain in Shropshire)
