Hi Dave

I haven't heard of any in my area (South Oxon) but I was wondering how
this compares to previous years? Is convolvuli a reasonably frequent
visitor to the UK or is this influx unusual? 

I only ask because I have been thinking that 1999 has been a
particularly bad year for migrants. So far I haven't seen any of the
usual things (Clouded Yellow etc).

Best wishes,
Chris R.
