The Comma Butterfly is another one of the hibernating over winter species. Its usually the first butterfly sighting I make in Spring, but this year was beaten into third place.
The book says that this species hibernates in woodland and in Spring the males will establish a territory in open sunny spots along the woodland edge.
This is exactly where I found three different Commas which are my first sighting of the species this Spring.
