Clouded Yellow sighting

I have just returned from a weekend in North Wales (Llandudno).
During the weekend I visited both Great Orme and Little Orme.

I saw Painted Ladies (Cynthia cardui) on both days, despite Saturday
having regular heavy downpours of rain.  It was quite a sight to see a
Painted Lady fly around me and then over a wall in strong wind and rain.
Obviously coping with the weather better than I.

On Sunday I saw a Clouded Yellow (Colias croceus) at Little Orme 10.30am approx.
As I suspect that this specimen couldn't be in two places at the same time,
there must have been at least two Clouded Yellows in the country (if not more).
