I don't know where they've been hiding up until now, but today I spotted the first Painted Lady of the year.
A year or so back Britain saw an invasion!
Have you seen one or more, or a Hummingbird Hawk-moth in your garden this year? If so, how about plotting your finding(s) at the Butterfly Conservation's website in their survey Migrant Watch.
In my garden both species have been favouring Verbena Bonarensis.
Which plant(s) have you spotted either species on?
