On my woodland walk this week I was surprised to see the White Admiral on the wing.
Usually this would be the first week in July.
The sightings were in two separate locations so it bodes well for numbers this year in respect of this species.
Also on the wing in the woodland area I did observe one Silver -washed Fritillary butterfly, but no chance of a photograph.
In respect of other species, I observed good numbers of Red Admiral and the Painted Lady. In respect of the Red Admiral, which is a migrating species, I observed more during the morning than I observed the whole of last year.
The Painted Lady in various conditions, continued to turn up all over the place.
