Butterflies now on the wing: out of hibernation and flying on warm days.
Look out for Brimstone, Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell, and Comma, especially where there is a nectar source in a sunny spot out of the breeze such as Coltsfoot, Dandelion, and Pussy Willow. Small White will also soon be on the wing.
