Butterflies galore

No photos, but lots of butterflies today in the glorious weather. Orange tips very common today at least 6 seen . Common blue butterflies were enjoying the garden , more than four spotted. Out on scrub land absolutely carpeted in stinging nettles saw a couple of small tortoiseshell butterflies.

Small tortoise shells lay their eggs on stinging nettles I will keep my eye on this patch to see if I can see any caterpillars.
