A painted lady butterfly (Cynthia cardui) has today (6 May 2000)turned
up in our garden in East Sussex, UK, about eight kilometres (5 miles)
from the English Channel.  This is the earliest I have seen this
migrant species here, so maybe we are going to have another painted
lady year in Europe like 1996.
