There are still a few butterflies about but they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. The Comma, in the featured image, was spotted at the Ben Rhydding Gravel Pits this afternoon. Most of the migrants, such as the Red Admiral, have made there way back to sunnier climes. Six days previous, on one of our local patches, there were nine Red Admirals; a week earlier there were twenty-six; today there were none. However, at another location a few were spotted on Ivy which has just come into flower. The season will soon be over but several species will overwinter if they can find a good place to roost. So keep an eye out in sheds, outhouses, or wood piles and you might come across one.
