The Surprise of the Year, A Dulwich Fritillary in South London, for the first time since the 1860's. Several turned up on a South London Butterfly Transect, even outnumbering Dark Green and Silver Washed in the final butterfly figures. The Dulwich Fritillary is better known as the Glanville Fritillary, which has been spreading its distribution in Surrey in recent years.
