November Butterflies in Shoreham
2 November 2009
When the sun emerged from from behind the frequent clouds a Peacock
Butterfly emerged from hibernation by the Ivy on the edge of the Pixie Path,
Old Shoreham, looking slightly tatty. Four Common Blue Butterflies were seen
at the northern end of the lower slopes of Mill Hill; both these records
were the first for the month of November. There was also a probable Large
White in Shoreham town which would also be a first for the month.
On Mill Hill, two Clouded Yellows courted and then mated and this was also
the first time that this has been seen locally.
