Yorkshire Status: Scarce and local migrant/wanderer.
Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This migrant is often absent for many years, presumably until the European population builds up to a peak and then there are large scale immigrations and it becomes established for a few years. This happened in the 1950s and again in the 1970s, when 1973 was a notable year. There have been occasional records since.
