I see where the Wandering Glider suggestion came from but this character has a yellow-tinged patches and coloured veins in the wings. I realize that this doesn't look like a classic Violet Dropwing but that's because it is an immature male - the pink colouration develops with maturity.

Quite a rare species in Europe.
