The Swallowtail saga continues

Another Swallowtail has been sighted – on 12 July, in Bournemouth. This adds to earlier sightings:

  • 7 June – Hengistbury Head, Bournemouth
  • 2 June – Durlston Country Park, near Swanage
  • 2 June – Pamphill near Wimborne
  • 31 May – Pamphill near Wimborne

The recorder of the most recent one got a photo, and it shows some damage to one of the wings, so it can be recognised if it is spotted again.
