Small Blue at Butterfly World

Had a nice walk with Butterfly Conservation around Butterfly World though only sunny patchs this morning had quite a few butterflies where the new dome is going to go with Small White, Small Tortoiseshell and Common Blue feeding on the Sunflowers and various other flowers that had been planted.

Then we walked around the meadow were we found 2 Small Blues, a first for the site and rarely seen in the St. Albans district. Also around were Common Blues, Six-spotted Burnet Moths and 1 worn Essex Skipper.

Lastly we went into the Greenhouse where there was plenty of exotic butterflies with Blue Morpho, Owl Butterflies, Scarlet Swallowtail, Tree Nymph, Postman, Atlas Moth and many more on all the wing with the children seeming loving which hopfully will encorage many of them to get involved with the outside world.
