Thanks for the reminder, have they got butterflies on the on line recording page? must take a better look. Bit late to put the last garden sightings on now though?
I am a bit late with my reply Martin. When you add your bird species look at the different species categories you can add, they are alongside the 'Birds'category. I am surprised you have not noticed these before. Better late than never and it is a good record for you to look back on in the future.

Is it too early for Speckled Wood? A small brown butterfly passed me too, bt didn't hand arpund to be identified; Speckled Wood was the only thing I could think it might be.

Not too early Tony. They are on the wing roughly April-September.

Butterflies were seen in good numbers at the weekend due to the glorious weather we have been enjoying!

The butterflies in the images added were seen at 2 separate sights.

Lovely flutterbys Judith

I'm mainly stuck inside looking after the twins currently, so I'm reduced to 'twitching' moths around the house and trying to ID them, which usually resorts in asking the internet.

Large yellow underwing yesterday, and a hook-marked straw moth today! The other day I found a (dead) clay on the stairs and before that a riband wave.

Its very exciting in this house

Goodness me, you must have the largest 'moth trap' in the world!

Now then, take your twin boys out for a walk after you have fed and changed them, before you need to feed and change them again! I bet you wouldn't get far from your home.lol
Nearing 3 months young, I bet they are a handful and a joy! (They will soon be crawling around, then you will be soooo busy!)

Yes, having the windows open and the lights on makes a very effective moth trap

We do normally get them out for a walk at the weekend but for one reason or another we didn't go out at all this weekend.

They were 12 weeks last Thursday, they're getting big now
