I'm not sure I should be taking part in this? Here on Scilly it could probably go on for another couple of weeks yet! But just for the record, today I had 20-plus Red Admirals and half-a-dozen Speckled Woods.
5 Small Coppers seen together still flying in the Pennine foothills on the Greater Manchester/Derbyshire border. Daytime temperature of only 6 degrees but 2 were spiralling and landed with wing fluttering courtship display. Hardy little creatures.
November 6th. One Small Copper still hanging on at Ludworth Quarry, in Greater Manchester. Roosting on a ragwort but when I returned 30 minutes later it had flown. Day temp today 12 degrees but with a stiff southerly wind. The slope below the quarry is SW facing but not particularly sheltered. The ragwort where it was roosting is central in the photo.
