iris in Richmond Park

Just received a (genuine) record of a Purple Emperor in Richmond Park on July 17th.  Not in the least surprised. 

Also, delighted to hear of one being seen near Cooling on the Cliffe peninsula in NE Kent on July 24th.  That's close to the Emperor's old heartland, Great Chattenden Wood.  I visited what's left of Chattenden a few years back and felt it was still suitable.
