Essex Emperors

Another interesting post from uk-leps yahoo group:-

The Colchester Natural History Society had a trip to Marks Hall Estate, Essex on 22 July and recorded 6 Purple Emperors and a number Silver-washed Fritillaries. Both species were re-introduced to this locality a few years ago. I just hope the appalling weather we are having this year doesn't ruin the chances of the survival of these colonies.
