Andy found this Small Copper at Ulwell on 16/11/17.
This is another very late sighting and it was a very accommodating butterfly, resting on Andy’s fingertip for a photograph.
Andy says it was very sunny that day, and he also saw four very active Clouded Yellows at the same site.
We have had some very cold nights and frosty mornings, so it is amazing that butterflies are still on the wing. Which species will be the last to be recorded this year?
