My first Holly Blue of the year today :) A male Brimstone also showed to add some colour.

It was probably a female Orange Tip which are very similar. I saw one in my garden today too. :nod:

May well be right JS. I did notice that it never had a black dot on each wing.

I'm not seeing many butterflies at present. The occasional Holly Blue or large White is my lot. :(
