One Red Admiral this afternoon as I was working lineside on the Mid Hants Railway, also a small coppery butterfly this morning during a walk through the fields. Didn't get close enough for a positive ID
On a day that started warm and sunny and transformed to wild and windy, remarkably I saw two species of butterfly! And the species in question – one Red Admiral and one Small White – my latest records of both, beating the previous records by a single day in both cases. As for any butterfly, the latest I have ever seen any species on the wing in Lithuania was 24 October in 2017 (Small Copper and Queen of Spain Fritillary). Here's hoping for this year ...though the forecast is far from promising!
Couple hours of sunshine between storms/fronts this afternoon. Saw a moth hovering around the front out the window (think Silver Y or poss Hummingbird HM), went out to see, no sign, but did flush a Red Admiral off the front lawn.
