A New Butterfly… Silver-washed Fritillary

Silver-washed Fritillary

A Silver-washed Fritillary butterfly has been seen for the first time in Ox Close. A male (characterised by the bands along the forewings) was seen on at least three occasions. Its foodplant is Violet of which there are plenty in the wood – so with a bit of luck…. it could breed!
