Gatekeeper Butterfly on Allium

Butterflies seem few and far between this year.

I know what you mean, I have hardly seen any this year of any type.

I hope it's just going to be this year and not a sign of things to come :o((

Great photo, but I agree Shirley it's quite sad. Did the Big Butterfly Count a few days ago . . just a few Gatekeepers and Large Whites :(

Sheila, I gave up trying to download the sheet for the Big Butterfly Count as it kept telling me 'Bad Parameter' when I tried to print! Today, I have seen a Peacock on a white Buddleja, a tiny Blue and another Gatekeeper. Better than none at all :o)

Oooh - that's lovely . . . glad there are still Peacocks and tiny blues :) (frustrating that you can't report them though)

Indeed, Sheila ... I have just watered the hanging baskets and half baskets and a couple of sleepy Moths flew out! Then, the hose connector decided to come apart so I got a soaking ... change of trousers required :o((

Ooops - it happens to most of us - just once, lol!
