Black veined Whites suddenly turn up on the edge of London while exstinct. And someone found someone to be releasing Butterflys

an exstinct Butterfly was spotted  near  London the Butterfly Conservation Trust say it might of been released 


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-65804939

 the headline is misleading since they were probably released like it says in the link.

There are some other misleading titles too so look out for those for those following this news 

In this case the misleading part is (thought) to be exstinct)  when the Butterfly (is )  (known) to be extinct. And proven to be completely exstinct from the UK but the content seems fine since it says the Butterfly conservation Trust say it was possiblely released

i havnt found any further updates as of writeing but I hope the news is of interest. people shouldn’t  be releasing Butterflys into the UK

    It ain't the first time (suspected) captive bred insects have been released. Large tortoiseshell occassionally crop up (and seemingly fail to establish).

    Graham Smith's observations are well constructed, well thought through IMO (heavy on aspects of the precautionary principle). It also appears that butterfly enthusiasts have their version of 'twitchers'.
