Nottinghamshire Flutterings 13th September – Monarch!

Nottinghamshire Flutterings 13th September – Monarch!

Monarch by Mike Hill

An almost pristine Monarch was photographed by Mike Hill. Perhaps an interesting record of a butterfly which cannot have flown very far!

Gatekeeper tops the charts, good showing of Red Admirals and late Meadow Browns, Gatekeepers and Ringlets.
