Saw some a couple of weeks ago in the old quarry at the top of Howes Lane in Northowram. Just afer a rain shower and the adults were flying and caterpillars munching through the ragwort.

I've been out for a wander this afternoon with my son & came across two ragwort plants with caterpillars on them at Barsey Lane, Barkisland. First I've seen this summer although I haven't gone looking for them. About 6 on one plant and a dozen on the other.
