Butterfly Sighting


Last Saturday, (2.4.11), whilst excavating a new vejetable plot, I was delighted to see a Male Brimstone gently floating across the garden. This was the first Brimstone we've recorded in Morganstown since we moved into the area in 2008, so a first for us.

Compensation for the backache from digging out all the rubble 'kindly' left by the house builder.Now I've just got to get rid of it!

  1. They are very beautiful butterflies and so unmistakable! Here in Tenerife where I now live we have the very similar Cleopatra butterfly and the caterpillars also feed on Buckthorn.
