Donald sent in this photo of a Small White he saw yesterday, 02/04/2021 telling us:

We were in our garden in Moordown fence painting and gardening when a Small White flew in to look at what we were doing. My wife Val commented that we hadn’t seen a Small White this early before. It visited us a few times taking an interest in the Honesty plants which have just come into flower.

Editor’s Note:  To date we have had 15 sightings of Small Whites reported to our website so far this year, the first one being on 09/03/2021 (last year the first one reported to us was seen on 01/03/2020).  This however is the first photo of one sent in for the Gallery this year.
