Aaahhh !!!! That's lovely. I hope he had his coat on, it's chilly out there.
I saw one fly past me this morning about a foot off the ground, either a Peacock or R.Admiral, I couldn't see properly.
that's amazing how lucky you are to have them spend the winter in your house !
i had a ladybird the other day when i was spring cleaning and giving my windows a good clean, think it came out of the window vent.
My daughter reared and released butterflies a couple of years ago. Here is a link to the video of the release.
Simon, a delightful little video. Nice to see the children so involved too.
How do you rear Butterfly's, I like to have a go ?
Really charming Simon, I did a batch of Small Tortoiseshell butterflies when I was a kid. Nettle leaf in a sweet jar.
Iv googled it and will have a go come Summer.
I don't know if anyone remembers the Comma butterfly on my garden wall last year or the Velocity? Moth laying dozens of eggs. Im hoping I may have a ready made supply of Butterfly's this year.
I'm currently (well not today in this weather ) letting lacewings out of the shed and have a couple hiding in the spare bedroom, and they haven't paid any board for Winter lodgings
Runny I remember the B/fly on your wall Not sure about moth.
Hope that you found the supplier: The one we used was http://www.insectlore.co.uk
