Andy was thrilled to find his first Large Tortoiseshell in the UK at Tout Quarry on 26/02/19.

Two were reported as being seen there, one having a light coloured speck above the third of the dark blotches on the right fore-wing.

This species is not known as a migrant, so it would be  interesting to know if they are releases or maybe they are going to start migrating to our shores.
