Kent/Surrey iris

A note received from Jim Yeeles

I live in Tatsfield on the Kent/Surrey border and thought you might be interested in a Purple Emperor sighting on 22nd July reported in our Parish Magazine.  I've attached a map with an arrow indicating the area where they have been seen before, apparently, but not for a few years.

I think I recall Mathew Oates tweeting about a larva found at Clacket a while ago.  I've never seen a PE but think I may need to pay more attention in future.

(Yes,  Matthew reported a larva at the back of the M25 Services - we also have iris reports from Sevenoaks in 2011 - Derek)
