Butterflies spotted locally
« on: July 31, 2011, 09:39:56 am »
Are there any butterfly experts on the fourm?  I saw these  yesterday. Can anyone confirm what they are?  According to my small Observer book the first looks most like a gatekeeper which is sometimes called the hedge brown.

And I think this second one is a skipper or a speckled wood, but I am not sure.

Both are probably listed on our pages about local butterflies.

Well done, David.  The first one is a Gatekeeper, one of which flew into our conservatory yesterday, and the other is a Speckled Wood.
