Notts Flutterings 64 (2016-04) – Brimstone and Peacock

Hello Butterphiles

Two more species on the wing over the last week – that brings us to four species so far this year.

Brimstone [11/01/2005-27/12/2015] 7/2/16-
Graham Gamage noted a brimstone on Sunday 7th February at Alverton

Peacock [03/01/2013-29/12/2015] 10/2/16-
Neil Pinder reports “two on the wing near East Bridgford on 10th Feb 2016” and the same day Brian Parkes saw another trying to find a bit of warmth at Toton.

A reminder that Red Admiral and Small Tortoiseshell have already been seen which leaves Comma as the only hibernator yet to be recorded this year.

Best wishes to all.
