Brown Butterfly on Sorrel
Observed: 28th May 2012 By: Lucy Corrander
Added: 30th May 2012
Brown butterfly with cream splodges. One 'eye' at the front of each wing and eye-like marks along the far edge of the rear wings. Not quite an inch and a half across with wings spread (estimate). On red sorrel in sunny garden. Although it looks like a speckled wood . . . is this the right habitat for it? No woodland nearby. A few trees and bushes.
