A recent colonizer, with relatively strong populations at Cape Porkkala in Kirkkonummi and coastal bays of southeastern Finland. Recently recorded from Lappeenranta in Southeastern Finland. Absent from Åland archipelago. Migrants could feasibly turn up pretty much anywhere near the coast.

Flight time March - early June ja late July - September, overwinters as an adult. Often gathers in long-grassed meadows and fields, sometimes quite far away from breeding sites.
