Small Tortoiseshell Butterflies released
Yesterday I released all seven of our Small Tortoiseshell butterflies, freshly emerged from their chrysalises. They had been feeding on the remains of my nectarine and sugar water over the weekend so were hopefully energised enough to take flight against the wind. We still have seven tiny Common Marbled Carpet Moth caterpillars looping their way round dock leaves in the Centre.
