Rare butterflies in the Netherlands


This video shows a white admiral butterfly.

Translated from Natuurmonumenten conservation organisation in the Netherlands:

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Natuurmonumenten foresters had a special observation at Boerskotten nature reserve in Overijssel: the white admiral. The Twente region is one of few places in the Netherlands where this rare butterfly still lives.

News about another rare butterfly species; translated from the Dutch Vlinderstichting entomologists:

Monday, June 23, 2014

Earlier than usually [because of mild weather this spring], as well as many other butterflies, the rare white-letter hairstreak has been seen regularly. The species, of which the only known place so far was in Heerlen, apparently lives in more places. There are populations in Winterswijk and Maastricht. This year new flying sites may be discovered.

This is a white-letter hairstreak video from England.
