Wow, loads of records coming in. I haven't been paying attention given the cool weather!!

The Adniston Speckled Wood nicely fills a gap in the distribution map!!

Good news George. Maybe we will be overrun with Small Tortoiseshells later in the year!

It has been a bit quiet over these last few days. Hopefully things will pick up when it warms up next week.
