Clouded Yellow at Oxwich

Paul Tyrrel wrote 'Oxwich hide was very quiet Friday morning on the birding front, with only the local Moorhen on show but warm weather brought out several dragonflies and one or two Red Admirals seen from the hide. But as I left and made my way along the boardwalk I was lucky enough to see this Clouded Yellow sunning its self in the grass. Considering all the rain we have had recently still in very good condition.'
[A late record of what has been an very poor year for this species.]

I also saw a Clouded Yellow on 1st Nov at Margam Tip. The latest date in Glamorgan was in 2006 when several were noted on the 9th Nov.
