Return to "The Glade" - Painted Lady

On Saturday morning I returned to the glade in Hill House Wood and whilst Silver-washed Fritillary was again the predominant species there were many others including Painted Lady.


I will post a few others in a few days time....... (to be continued).

  6. Lovely butterflies! I see they enjoy thistle there as well as they do here.

    I enjoyed the post on the Jersey towers and your explanation as to why they were designed as they are.

    Thank you for your appreciation of the Painted Lady, one of the many, many thousands that have invaded our shores from North Africa this year.
