13 Feb 2007 - Near Rye, East Sussex

News of a Camerberwell Beauty just down the road in East Sussex was interesting. A few calls later and I was speaking to the guy looking after the beastie.

His neighbour had been clearing the flower border and noticed, amongst the Crocosmia, some movement - a butterfly walking out of the left litter.

This represented one of the very few cases of a Camberwell Beauty successfully overwintering in the UK.

Yes, I will go and see another one in the UK when the opportunity arises.
