Bluebells and Butterflies

In St Florence this afternoon the first Bluebells I have seen this year - a small clump amongst the mass of Wild Garlic which is also starting to bloom. Plenty of Butterflies on the wing - Small Tortoiseshell, Comma, Small White, Orange Tip, Red Admiral. Yesterday at Manorbier a Small Blue. Yesterday evening a small bat, presumably Pipistrelle, flying around the house.

  1. I have heard of Small Blues in late April (still unusually early) but your sighting would be a noteworthy record!
    Could it possibly be the more likely Holly Blue that was seen?
