WHITE ADMIRAL Limenitis camilla

In the mid-2000s there were a few reports of single butterflies being seen in Cheshire, and also one just over the border in Derbyshire, by P. Greenall, who photographed it taking nectar in his garden. These were presumably strays which had migrated out of their normal habitat (somewhere in the eastern Midlands?) in attempts to colonise new pastures. As none have been seen since, they presumably did not manage to establish any colonies.
