Argus 47, 2001-04:
VC61. Spurn, 7.8.2004 det. BRS (MJC). NEW COUNTY RECORD.
Current status (HEB, 2011): Resident in the southern counties of England and in south Wales. First recorded at Spurn (VC61) in 2004 with two further occurrences at the same locality in 2009, these are perhaps more likely to represent immigrant examples from continental Europe than wanderers from the south of England.
