Thats a good mix Andy, bet you enjoyed the rarities. Not been bad for butterflies this summer. 2 new ones for the garden with Small Skipper and a few Ringlets last week. Yesterday we had 11 Tortoiseshells on our Buddleia and loads of Small Whites but only a few G V Whites about on next doors brassicas!

GV whites seem a bit thin on the ground,,,loads of Small had 10+ in and around the garden......
