What’s happened to the Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock butterflies ?

with No Comments

Still no Small Tortoiseshell or Peacock butterflies in the garden this year. Apart from Red Admirals, which are now recorded in every month, these are the two earliest butterflies normally seen in the garden.

Holly Blues, Speckled Woods and a couple of flythrough ‘white’ butterflies have already made appearances.

The male Orange-tip shown emerged from the chrysalis featured in the previous post.

Hopefully these missing overwintering species will appear with a spot of warm, sunny weather.
