Marbled Whites. Lots

Just back from wandering dreamily through a field containing over 600 of these magnificent butterflies. SIX HUNDRED!

Had my first garden record in the west London suburbs a few days ago. They appeared locally in the last decade + over last couple of years they've colonised just about every meadow now me + pretty abundant now. Ringlets seemed to arrive at a similar time.

I also had my first records from a site in Southfields on Sunday, just down the road from where I live. That's the first in 43 years.
