First Marbled White Butterfly Spotted

It is probably not something to shake the world, but to me it is a great find. I spotted a marbled white butterfly for the first time on the greenway. Lovely to see something new.

Four of us today, Linda, Marcus, Ruby and myself. You have to start them young to get their interest…

We started where we left off on Sunday and our first job was to bend the hooks to close them up a bit. This should stop the squirrels knocking the feeders off the posts so easily.

The seed feeders really are on their last legs now and need replacing.

After the hook modifications, we headed south and just snipped back anything that was starting to leap across the path.

A quick look up and down shows a rich and diverse habitat. Loads of butterflies basking in the sun.

Great day today. Fantastic way to make new friends.
