Rare immigrant.
Apparently established in the New Forest, Hampshire, central Scotland and Ireland in the late 19th century, it went unrecorded for many years until found to be breeding again in the 1980s. Now known from coniferous woodland and plantations in scattered localities across the country. Records of singletons suggest migration, but it is also possible that additional resident populations occur.
