Large Yellow & Black butterfly with a tail
No interactions present.
Didn't realise we has Swallowtail butterflies in Britain. I've only ever seen them in mainland Europe. Wonderfully exotic looking. Are they a migratory species?
The answer is both yes and no.
The continental race gorganus is migratory but the British race britannicus is not.
Thanks David for that info.
DavidHowdon - IS this one britannicus?
I am trawling though some oldies - sorry!
almost certainly britannicus but I'm not familiar with the species to know for sure
