Dave Law brings us this exciting news: “A walk along the Dorset coast from Ringstead Bay to Durdle Door revealed the offspring of the Painted Lady feeding on thistles . Virtually every clump revealed near fully grown larvae. Prepare for a summer emergence in the next 2-3 weeks!”
If you see the adult butterflies, please do report them to us via our sightings page. The photo above, from 2012, reminds you what these migrant butterflies look like.
