Iris makes it to Minsmere

Don't know if it's of any interest but a male Purple emperor has been around for a few days from Canopy hide at Minsmere, Suffolk.

The species has never before been recorded on the site as I understand it. Given that Theberton woods are only a few miles will no doubt cause some debate about the butterflies origin..

very interesting indeed: don't we have any recent records at all from Essex ?
