Insect News: a Long-tailed Blue butterfly was found in a private house in Alrewas, Staffordshire at 19:45 yesterday. This individual will have almost certainly emerged from vegetables purchased from a supermarket. They are normally associated with legumes so can come with 'petis pois' which are commonly imported from southern European countries.........Birdguides.
