Yorkshire Status: Very rare and very local migrant/wanderer. No recent record.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: This species is a resident of Russia, Hungary and western Asia (Skinner, 1984). Sixteen specimens have been recorded in the British Isles as migrants, three of which have been found in Yorkshire. The most recent of these was in Kirkstall, Leeds (VC64) in 1939 (YNU, 1970).

2012 (CHF): We still have just the three records; Middlesbrough in 1903, Methley in 1910 and Kirkstall in 1939. It remains an extremely rare migrant with no recent British records.
