News from Nottinghamshire

Male and female seen at Wellow Wood in Nottinghamshire yesterday.  Wellow Wood is a famous old wood for Purple Emperor but releases noted there in the early 1980's.

No other recent records from the wood which is only about twenty miles to the north of Cotgrave Woods where PEs have been seen for the last two years (anecdotal records for about five years).

The first 2016 Cotgrave Wood sightings were also seen yesterday (14th July).

The status for both sites is uncertain.
