Rare butterflies on Schiermonnikoog island


This is a video about a grizzled skipper butterfly quarreling with a bumblebee about a flower in the Netherlands.

Grizzled skippers are rare in the Netherlands. Schiermonnikoog island is one of few places where they live. This spring, 90 grizzled skippers were seen there.

Also, seven brown argus butterflies were seen in the island’s Noorderduinen. This species had been absent from Schiermonnikoog for years.

This is a brown argus video from Britain.
