So far... everything earlier than ever before...:

Hi folks,

Though I've only recorded four species of butterfly thus far this year, they all share one thing in common... I recorded them on dates that were the earliest ever within my recording area, namely:

Large White Pieris brassicae on 26th March
Green-veined White Artogeia napi on 25th March co-incidentally, the same date as last year
Small Tortoiseshell Aglais urticae on 29th February, and
Peacock Butterfly Inachis io on 24th March.

Cheers,
Steve
