Macroglossum stellatarum in my Manchester garden?

I've just seen a flying insect that reminded me of a humming bird. It was collecting pollen from my Dianthus flowers. I've googled it and it looks like it's a macroglossum stellatarum, although it would seem that my garden in Manchester would be a highly unlikely habitat for it I have made a video of it. Can anyone confirm what it is please. I'm 52 years old and have never seen one of these before!
