Butterflies at UskmouthA few more butterflies today. Nectaring on sallow at Uskmouth were 2 peacocks and a small tortoiseshell. A female brimstone was flying against the easterly wind. Also a few small and large whites about. Still no orange-tips though, can't be long now. I did the butterfly transect on Sunday and only saw 3 peacocks and one small white, despite the 100% sunshine and hardly a breeze.
Peacock on sallow blossom
Its hard to believe that this butterfly must be at least 7 - 8 months old.
