Very interesting find

Very interesting find Philip,

Do you see many of these in the Mournes? Havent seen it here in the Antrim hills yet, hopefully will do some day. To be honest I didnt even know we had it over here.

New to Me

Must add the 'New to me' tag - I had never seen one before and there only seem to be a handful of reports from NI in the NBN database.

Its a good one. I wonder is it native or is a new arrival?
