I'm not sure how rare they are, I've never seen one before, but talking to Andy the other week he thought Cunnery Wood might be a good place to keep an eye out - problem is since we spoke on that day it has rained and not been too cracky for butterflies.

I love the light blue down each side of the eye.

This one visited our garden the other day.
