I have just seen our first Red Admiral Butterfly in the garden this year. It's September!

We have had numerous Cabbage White and in June I thought I saw an Orange Tip, but other than that ... nothing.

Now, a Red Admiral, in nearly Autumn. Well, all right Autumn. Where has he been all Summer?

Fennie's Avatar Saw some little white butterflies here - like Cabbage Whites but much smaller. Like you KKC I've seen remarkably few butterflies this year.Very Happy

Withy Brook's Avatar Very few here, despite Buddlaea etc.

Camilla's Avatar Adore butterflys, used to see them a lot at our old garden as we had a large Bhudlia bush which attracted them lots of Admirals too but only seen a few little white ones here over the summer month. Perhaps it is the long warm weather this year KKCVery Happy

KitKatCot's Avatar I'm afraid we haven't had much warm weather up here this year. May and June seemed promising but July and August were distinctly overcast and on the cool side.
