I finally caught up with a couple of butterflies. Slow start for me this year.

Good to see yours have arrived now TJ. We've had orange tips around for a week or so now & managed to get a few shots
a few Small Coppers
& an early Scarce Swallowtail

The butterflies keep coming!! Our local website shows over 30 species so far this year of which we've seen 18. This is another, such a lovely colour but tricky in bright sunshine, a Green Hairstreak,
a probable Grizzled Skipper
& even a Clouded Yellow
I think it'll be a good year for Flutterbies!
So lovely to see the various butterflies you are getting Hazel, I've seen a few Brimstone, Peacock last week and we have a lot of mining bees and one or two bumble bees buzzing around our garden when its sunny so a sure sign spring is here - almost ! Today it's drizzling and grey so will have to remain patient again until the sun returns.
