Eyed hawk Moth caterpillar

As I sat and read a book on out sun lounger in the front garden I heard a loud munching sound. I looked closely at the twisted hazel tree nearby and noticed a large hawk moth caterpillar munching on the leaves.

After a close examonation and checking on a refernce book (some hawk moth caterpillars are similar) I decided it was am Eyed hawk Moth Smerinthus ocellatus
