Argus 81, 2017: A rare migrant which seems to be becoming commoner since the first record for Britain in 2001. July was a good month for unusual migrants all over the country, and at the time of writing, 14 records of this species for 2017 had been submitted to the national migrant records coordinator. The Spurn record was the most northerly.
VC61. Spurn (Easington), 29.7.2017 (MFS). NEW COUNTY RECORD.
Argus 87, 2019: Another unexpected migrant moth. This is the second county record; the first being at Spurn in 2017. This is a relatively recent migrant to the UK having first been seen at Portland in 2001.
VC63. Cudworth, 25.7.2019 (CG). NEW VICE-COUNTY RECORD.
Argus 90, 2020: This migrant species is gradually becoming more common since first appearing in Dorset in 2001. The first and second Yorkshire records were in 2017 and 2019, and we have had three more this year, all arriving within a few days.
