Argus 63, 2011: A totally unexpected addition to the Yorkshire list. One flying by day. A national BAP species, declining and very local. The nearest modern records are in Lincolnshire though there is a record from a Durham hay field in 1994. Searches will take place in 2012 to see if we have a colony.
