This insect is a regular migrant to Britain and may be found in all habitat types. From late spring and continuing through the summer, it migrates northwards from North Africa and continental Europe. The immigrant females lay eggs and consequently there is an emergence of fresh butterflies, from about July onwards. They continue flying into October or November. In milder years the butterfly may overwinter in the far south of England. Picture taken 1st August 2006 at Stevington, Bedfordshire.
