Thirteen members were not disappointed in the hope of seeing Wood White butterflies, of which at least 15 were flying. Also seen were Brimstone, Speckled Wood, Holly Blue and many Speckled Yellow Moths.
As part of Butterfly Conservation’s Wood White Project over 1,000 plug plants needed as food plants by Wood White caterpillars had been provided by Wakehurst Place and distributed among local landowners.
Two mature Wild Service Trees were covered in white blossom. Singing were Chiffchaff, Blackcap and a Nightingale in full voice.
