My first sightings of the Orange Tip this year and this was about 15 days later than last year.
That said, I didn't see very many at that time. Following on from that, we had all the rain for the rest of the Summer and I never observed any further of the species. So hopefully having seen quite a few in my first round of sightings this year I think its a sign that they have recovered, hopefully.
