21 May 1983 Delamere Forest SJ542716 Adult 3 comments also from LWH in a subsequent email to SF as follows : I recorded it somewhere around the early 1980s in Delamere Forest in two or three successive years. (Steve McWilliam should have the precise details on Recorder if you need it, though not the precise OS reference as I usually use a single central reference per site.) I remember that on at least one of those occasions, it was reasonably numerous - I would guess something like a dozen specimens being seen along the rides in one sunny morning. LCES106:109
