Walking round this afternoon I was struck by how few butterflies I’ve been seeing lately. The Spring seemed to get off to a reasonable start and I saw all of the expected early species including Brimstone, Comma, Painted Lady, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock, Orange Tip, Speckled Wood, & Small White. But for the past few weeks they’ve mostly dried up. I did see two Red Admiral and a couple of Meadow Brown in the church yard today but that was it in a two hour session.

On a more positive note, the pair of Spotted Flycatcher in Felbrigg are busy feeding young, suggesting that they were fairly early arrivers and holding out the promise of a second and possibly a third brood!
