We saw two of these Speckled Wood Butterflies in Broadhead Clough on the Halifax Scientific Society monthly ramble on Saturday. Then another in fields above Daisy Bank, Mytholmroyd (surprisingly a few hundred metres away from the nearest woodland). This photo was taken of another at the Ridings, the fields above Jerusalem Farm, yesterday, 15th July
It had become the most regular butterfly last year in my garden next to Bankhouse Wood near Skircoat/Copley, but I’ve only had one record this year, early on before the rains came.
One Painted Lady Butterfly was in a garden near Saville Park last Thursday, 12th July.
