New Zealand Vagrant in the Garden!

Get these in my garden in Paignton: Prickly Stick Insect, from New Zealand - one of 4 spp of Stick Insect that have turned up on The Scillies, This one has now colonised the SW, Torbay being a bit of a hotspot. They appear to like Leylandii, which I have plenty. This one was c. 8cm from head to tail (though longer when the front legs protrude) but I did come across one that was 11cm.

Torcross.

For at least the past 5 years, 1 or 2 Bloxworth Snouts appear in my patio at this time of the year; and because the door is always open, they enter the house, overwinter, and re-emerge in the spring. 1or2 also overwinter in my neighbours car  port ( once 1 overwintered in her car ) Cananyone tell me how common they are now in Devon, away from their original core area of Torbay ?   email. asearle.tamarisk@icloud.com

Poor photo of  Bloxworth Snout.
