One of the well known but unpredictable migrant butterflies to Britain is the Clouded Yellow (Colias croceus).
Last Friday I spotted one individual as it flew strongly westwards over Denbies Hillside while I was immersed in photographing other species. At the end of a stroll around Ashtead Common today with one of the Rangers another individual caught our attention as we traversed the meadow. It was flying purposefully around a specific area so I waited patiently and eventually managed to capture an image when it perched very briefly within range of the lens.
There have been a few other sightings recently in Surrey so hopefully there might be other opportunities to watch this delightful migrant that arrives here from around the Mediterranean. FAB.
