I saw a gorgeous sulphur yellow Brimstone butterfly in the sunshine this morning

    Good idea Dove, lots of brimstones today, a few small tortoiseshells and a couple of peacocks.

    Might do a moth trap this week, can they share your butterfly thread please?

    Here's a picture of a moth I spotted the other day - was trying to fly but one back leg damaged so I managed to get a photo

    I'm afraid I don't know what we saw yesterday, but there were two or three different kinds - they move faster than either my eyes or my brain these days!!

    General colours Bookertoo?  Yellow or orange at this time of year = brimstones or tortoiseshells
