General comments:
Local resident.

The records are scattered and it seems that this species prefers older, mature woodlands that have been around for a while. It does not seem able to move into newly planted or heavily managed woodlands.

Recorded in 31 (76%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1887.
Last Recorded in 2024.
