Butterflies are fluttering

Such a pleasure to see them fluttering in the sunshine…. Bill Young’s latest wildlife update reminds us of the amazing butterflies we have on our sites. Watch out for these…

Speckled Wood

“In the allotments at the weekend I saw the following –  Brimstone with its white lightly greenish yellow wings.
Comma – bit like a Red Admiral only with ragged edges to its wings.
Speckled Wood Butterfly – dusty grey-black wings with cream dots with a black-eye. It was enjoying a sunbathe on Albert’ s shed.”
