A keen lepidopterist has reported seeing a Black Swallowtail butterfly in the gardens in June near the pond. As this species is native to North America we are wondering if it has escaped from a collection, Buckfastleigh Butterfly Farm maybe?

Any more reports of rare or unusual flora and fauna in the gardens will be very welcome.
