Hummingbird Hawkmoth and other local bits

I added Hummingbird Hawkmoth to the garden list last year and this year one has appeared again. It showed for a while on 2 occasions by the patio on Saturday 1 October. Other recent bits include Painted Lady in the garden (still present on 5 October), Small Copper added to the garden list on 5 October when I bizarrely had a singing Blackcap too! Other butterflies still about include Small White, Large White and Red Admiral plus Migrant Hawker. A few House Martins were moving through locally on 1 October. 
My first Redwings of the autumn were around Wortham Common on Sunday 2 October where I also had Sparrowhawk, Common Buzzard, Green Woodpecker and a small movement of Meadow Pipits.
