Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is now very scarce in Yorkshire. There are only records from two widely separated areas, although no post 1960 records are shown for Yorkshire on map 3 in MBGBI 2. The species seem to need old poplar or pollarded willow (B MacNulty, pers. comm.) which may now be rare due modern farming practices.
2012 (CHF): The only recent record of this species within the county is from Rossington in 2005 though there was an unconfirmed record of a pair in-cop in June 2010 in the Doncaster area. There are several old records from this area so it is possible that we still have a resident population.
