Monarch butterfly lands in Dorset

October 2011. A rare butterfly, normally found on the other side of the Atlantic, has been discovered on England’s South Coast. The Monarch buterfly [sic], a spectacular black and orange vagrant butterfly, was seen on Buddleia plants in Ringstead Bay, in Dorset. It is not known if the butterfly was blown here as a result of the Indian summer currently gripping the UK or was deposited by hurricane winds from America.

Small populations in Spain

Monarchs are large and unmistakeable with the majority being found in North America, but a smaller population survives in Southern Spain and on the Canary Islands.
