Purple Hairstreaks - New Site

I was in Liverpool Cricket Ground on Sunday Morning and was surprised to see a couple of Purple Hairstreaks along with Holly Blues. Although Purple Hairstreaks have been recorded in South Liverpool in the past, it has always been sporadic. I have seen them myself in the past in Calderstones Park and Allerton Cemetery, and they are certainly under recorded because there are good numbers of mature oaks in the cities park and woodlands.
