4 Clouded Yellows on the wing at Southbourne Undercliff today 10th November with 1 Red Admiral showing briefly. There was a Wall Brown reported from Hengistbury Head as well. On the 5th November I saw a Clouded Yellow egg laying on Birds Foot Trefoil at Southbourne in a sheltered area along the undercliff.
Looking at the forecast for the next week, I don't think I'll be spending much time searching for Butterflies, but: I have a Primrose poking a flower out at the Velator bird reserve in N Devon. Must be spring!
First frost of the season this morning but wall to wall sunshine soon made it feel much warmer! Four Clouded Yellows, three Small Coppers (all male) A very tatty Wall Brown and a female Small White were all enjoying the sun too!
Sat in the lounge with curtains pulled against the bright sunlight to see a butterfly fluttering silhouetted outside. Go out to see a nice Small Tortoiseshell sunning at the top of the wall below the gutter . Back inside to grab the camera but gone when went back out.
