A Monarch was photographed at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Sussex by Chris Bentley on 4th August. The thoughts are that this is probably a genuine migrant. Reported on Sussex BC website http://www.sussex-butterflies.org.uk/sightings/

A male Long-tailed Blue was photographed at Southwick Basin, (Shoreham), Sussex by David Cook on 8th August. In past years this has been a good, solid site for this migrant species. Reported on Sussex BC website http://www.sussex-butterflies.org.uk/sightings/
