My mother was quite excited that she had seen a hummingbird at her house in 
Frankston, Melbourne.... sure enough, an Eastern Spinebill ;-)

As Michael Norris noted, what your daughter saw was surely a Hummingbird
Hawk-moth. They do look quite like hummers, and there just aren't any in
Europe - though watch out for the massive twitch when a Ruby-throated turns
up in Britain....
