Winter butterflies

This weekend I checked in on the hibernaculum at Scone. All is frozen time - the butterflies and moths still in their positions.

I also found a Purple Hairstreak egg at Scone Palace. I have no doubt that there is a strong colony there given the ancient oaks, but I don't think they've been recorded before. Stately homes are the first place I'd look to discover them in new areas, as the best oaks are usually there.
