We have started seeing Red Admirals around this area, and in the garden, during the last week. These are probably immigrants, either from down south or continental europe. Another candidate to breed on nettles now they are here. This one closed its wings when the sun went in.
There was another Hummingbird hawkmoth at the window on the 20th. It was feeding at Honeysuckle flowers around lunchtime. Watch out for them, there seem to be a lot around at the moment, These will have arrived from the continent I expect. have been known to breed on the east coast occasionally.
