Personal observations and pictures from a butterfly garden in Cirencester,
Gloucestershire and images from the English countryside
I have seen Red Admiral, Small
Tortoiseshell and Brimstone
butterflies in the first half of November.
These are all species that spend the winter in adult form (as a butterfly).
Comma and Peacock
butterflies hibernate too.
Hebe plants and Buddleia
weyeriana have attracted butterflies in November.
I've also produced an overview of the butterfly
year and there's a list of butterflies flying each month on my calendar
