Had a great non-avian highlight at Liverton this morning - a Swallowtail butterfly flew by at 12:15. Unfortunatly i was at work and did not get a chance to have a good look around for it afterwards. As i am not a great butterfly expert i would not know much about the provenance of a record like this but if there are any butterfly twitchers who maybe interested the grid ref is SX803752. I believe this is known as Old Liverton, about 1km towards Haytor from the bigger part of Liverton which is across the A38 from Trago Mills. I have lifted a couple photos of the internet to show exactly where.
