A Long Way From Camberwell

A report (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-north-west-wales-11046757) that a Camberwell beauty butterfly had been spotted in a garden in Conwy North Wales is interesting. Although the butterfly has an English-sounding name, it is actually more commonly found in Scandinavia. The specimen will, most likely, have made its way across the sea  whilst in migratory mode. I haven't got a picture of one but the Painted lady does a similar thing (I have only just seen my first of these locally after a bumper year in 2009).
