	The _Vanessa atalanta_ (Red Admiral) northward flight this year
reached rather high latitudes:

	In Alaska, Jack Harry reported one specimen at mile 323 Dalton
Highway, 69 degrees N, on 2 July. A number of _atalanta_ were seen near
Haines, 59.25 degrees N.

	In Canada, William Davies found a single specimen on the sea ice
about 4 km off East Bay, Southampton Island (mouth of Hudson Bay), at the
odd date of 21 May. Latitude was approx. 64 degrees N.
