Essex Skipper (Thymelicus lineola) Explored

This a recent addition to Ireland's list of butterflies, having recently colonised the southeast of the island. I'm not sure how it got here but it seems to be doing well now that it has arrived. The east and southern part of County Wexford is the best place to look for them. It should be on the wing now.
