All good to see JS. Never seen much today, was a nip in the air, despite the sunshine.

Small Tortoiseshells hibernate in adult form so that is very likely.

Well spotted Willpar. I am getting very few butterflies at present :( I was hoping the warm weather would encourage them out.

It is now at least two weeks since I saw a butterfly in the garden. Where have they all gone?
