Yesterday I found a spot where 2 female Red Admirals were actively laying eggs. I watched as many were laid. When I checked the Nettles to confirm that laying had actually occurred I found that many of the fresh nettle tips already had other Red Admiral eggs on them in addition to the freshly laid ones, so there were many. This was quite a large patch of lush Nettle regrowth. I will try and keep tabs on these eggs/larvae and see how things develop.
I just wondered how unusual this is? I appreciate it is unusually mild, but is this event recorded regularly at this time of year?
Any comments appreciated.
