Hi All, Has anyone else seen more of these than usual this year. In the last week I have disturbed 3 in grass during the day.
1) Around the edge of a school playground in Widnes.
2) Up on the waste ground over the river tunnel just past Morrisons on the way to todmorden. a good locationfor Small Skippers incidentaly (See pic)
3) Wandering around at Glastonbury Festival
and 4) One in the moth trap recently.
I also read that this moth can be a migrant, any info anyone. Whilst on this subject is there any evidence for reverse migration from the UK in Painted Lady butterflies. A friend saidshe had heard this on the radio?
