First sighting today!

The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Had our first unconfirmed visitor sightings today at around 2:30. It seems they may have emerged on exactly the same day as last year!

It’s very likely that these individuals are early and it’s probably going to be a little while before the population really starts to get going as the thyme across the site is still mostly in its very early stages.

A word of warning; plenty of visitors today went home without seeing any LB’s at all, and these few sightings are by no means a guarantee that visitors in the near future will be certain (or even likely) to see this amazing butterfly.

This is excellent news though and a really good sign that more are likely to follow.

  1. Hi Jono, it was good meeting you on Friday 🙂 We didn’t get to Collard Hill but saw lots of interesting beasties at Lytes Cary Manor instead 🙂
    We’ll be watching your blog to see the first photo’d sightings of LB – and hope you get your swim 😉

    Best wishes
