July 6th Warwickshire sighting

Matthew has received this sighting and has asked me to post it [he is otherwise engaged up north with Mountain Ringlets and High Browns].
Ben Coleman, the assistant ranger at Ryton Pools Country Park sent this message to the Warwicks site: " ...............just seen my first ever Purple Emperor. It was down on the beach area near the bird hide, picking up salts from the sand.............I'm over the moon!"

It would appear to be the second sighting so far this season.
