“Really good to be at Butterfly Conservation’s members day in Cheltenham, yesterday with Melissa.
We got some Alder Buckthorn (still in leaf). Something is present in Sweden (further north in latitude), that isn’t on a garden distribution map in Scotland”

Large White Life Cycle

"Traditionally (recently) in the UK, I think Large White Butterflies have been more numerous in the summer than in the Spring. Eggs laid on host plants are in clusters and repeated laying by different females results in small and large caterpillars growing together that can eventually "dev...

Re: Neil Hulme

Hi Neil, Looking at the UKB life cycle chart for the Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary (SPBF), there appears to me, approx. 12 weeks needed between broods (from imago to imago) in the summer when the larva have much to feed on.

Re: Pauline

Hi Pauline, Hope you are feeling better. Generally, I recommend consulting a doctor about Antihistamines taken in tablet form before one comes into contact with a substance one might be allergic to if one is working in such environments where there are many biting and stinging insects. Or (as most p...

I think that a more detailed study of this butterfly here could reveal much more as to why it does not occur (or could ...

What a lovely place to be. Your unnamed butterflies are silver-studded blue, moorland clouded yellow, scarce copper, lesser marbled fritillary (I think - but the grass is definitely grass) and probably a female silver-studded blue. Guy "The Silver Studded Blue was re-introduced to that habitat...

2701 X 1000 is quite a good size for me without dragging photo to adjust image too much.
