I spent 15 minutes yesterday morning counting butterflies in T's garden. It was a bit breezy so the best spot was the big Hebe bush beside the drive which was buzzing with all sorts of insects - bees, wasps, beetles, flies etc etc.
3 gatekeepers - all male - chasing each other around
1 large white - there may have been 2 as seen twice, passing through the garden at a rate of knots
1 small white
I hope to do another count nearer to home next weekend.
