Bats, Bees and Butteflies seen was created by Cathy C
Went for a quick walk along the road to Southfield Bridge tonight (1st March 2012). It was dusk and I was surprised to see at least 3 bats flying already. They must have decided it was warm enough to emerge from their roosts and catch some insect food. There have been quite a few moths and other insects flying since the weather turned warm.

Barry saw a couple of bumblebees out in the garden today and was even more excited to see his first butterfly of the year. It seemed to be a Red Admiral but unfortunately did not hang around long enough to get a really good look at it. Red Admiral's do not normally survive here overwinter but this year's weather may have allowed them to survive. Please post your butterfly and other insect sightings on the forum.

Red Admirals still about. Barry saw a Red Admiral along the Glebe Path today. It was feeding on the Viper's Bugloss which is still in flower. It's nice to see the wild flowers along the path attracting insects.
