Been painting the garage doors today watching the Painted Ladies wafting past. 'Hundreds' coming in off the sea while out with Frank both yesterday and still coming today. The biggest insect migration in living memory - glad to have witnessed it.
Sorry no photos - covered in paint so not picking the camera up.
Where to next? Nowhere Land Rover has pulled a muscle aka broken down....oooohhhh nooooo!!

Your comment at EcoRover about our ecoregions sharing some species was interesting. We have grayling, too, though of course a slightly different form given lots of time for natural selection to work.

We also have painted ladies. Fairly common to see a few here and there, but I did once witness a migration of perhaps several thousand.
