INVERTEBRATE

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

BUT­TER­FLIES We rightly as­so­ciate but­ter­flies with our warmer months. But a hand­ful of Bri­tain’s species, mostly brightly coloured mem­bers of the Nym­phal­i­dae fam­ily, can be seen in win­ter... if you know where to look. Adult Pea­cocks, Red Ad­mi­rals, Small Tor­toise­shells and Com­mas (left) fre­quently hi­ber­nate in dark re­cesses of hu­man habi­ta­tion. So use a torch to il­lu­mi­nate the cor­ners of your shed or out­house.
