Monarch at Margam

Mike and Diana Clark had good views of a Monarch (Danaus plexippus) at Margam Park yesterday while watching the Red Deer rut. This North American transatlantic vagrant was last recorded in Glamorgan on 27th August 2006 at Kenfig Pool by David Carrington. Good luck if you're out an about!

Wow! How exciting to have a Monarch in South Wales.

... I recently enjoyed watching similar but different butterflies in Greece (here).
