Better late than never...
Richard Pryce put me in contact with Sarah Adams, who lives in NW Carmarthenshire (SN33) and Sarah kindly sent me some mostly old but very useful records, which I`ll pass on to Sam in due course.
Above: this privet hawk-moth caterpillar was in her garden quite some time back - on 8/10/07.
Above: the scarlet tiger caterpillars (on Symphytum caucasicum) were seen on 14/4/14, with adults seen on occasion. An adult (shown above) was also noted this year, on 4/7/17..
This year, Sarah spotted a hummingbird hawk-moth on 7/6/17.
