A sporadic migrant with most sightings in eastern England and Scotland; migrants probably originate from Scandinavia.
A large, striking and unmistakable butterfly with a distinctive white border to the wings.
Mostly seen in late summer, especially from early August with a few in early spring (which may have overwintered). Its appearance is sporadic - a few in most years with occasional larger influxes.
