Katrina wrote:I went to Mill Hill at about 3pm today. I saw in rather dodgy weather Walls, Meadow Browns, Common Blues, a White and a Small Copper.


I was there in the morning Katrina (left about 1). Saw a good range of species, mostly hiding from the wind at the base of the steep slope.

Thanks James, I think the Peacock saved the day photography wise.

Thanks Bugboy, sorry to have missed you I should have got out sooner. The bottom of the slope is where I found most too.

Thanks Goldie, the Peacock was perfect, now if only I could train them to sit on flowers on command.

Following reading about large numbers of Red Admirals at Nymans Gardens on Sunday on the Sussex Butterfly Website myself and a friend decided to go today. We saw a total of 43 Red Admirals including 3 bialbatas , 2 Peacocks and 2 Commas.

I envy you Katrina, the sun never quite reached me today, although I was right on the edge of the cloud.
Your images suggest it could be Spring !.

I was lucky with the weather for a change, grey when I left home and it turned into t-shirt weather at Nymans.

That's a great return for a late October day, Katrina.

We'll all be mesmerised by such figures in 2-3 weeks time so well done for getting a last 'show' in before the season ends!

A nice selection and excellent numbers of Red Admirals, Katrina. They are very fond of mahonia flowers (second photo) - I've seen them on this late-flowering shrub into December. That Comma looks quite distinctively marked too.
