    Yesterday I saw more small tortoiseshells while out walking than I saw for the whole of last year. There were dozens flitting about, must all have emerged together. Last year I never saw more than one at a time, and probably only totalled three or four the whole year.



    And can anyone identify this butterfly? It was as dark underneath as it was on top. I thought maybe a blue of some sort but they all seem to have pale undersides. It was small like a blue though.

    Mothhawk, did you attach a picture? If so, I can't view it.
    Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

      • Thanks, Bren In Pots. It is odd. I can see Mr Bones' photo but not mothhawk's at post 234.

            • Over the last few days I have had a frog jump out of the tool shed doorway and land on the edge of the rubbish bin.
              A speckled wood got stuck in the greenhouse and a tortoise shell on a self seeded pansy.

              • Our local loch is best known for a pair of Ospreys nesting on an island, but to maintain the loch side environment they use Hairy Coos, gardening, but not as we might know it.

                      I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."

                            Are you leaving out wine for them?

                            • I have a feeling if they banned slug pellets there might be more Thrushes around, plenty up here in our village, there's only 3 of us grow veggies and don't use pellets.
