Stratford Butterfly Farm

Glasswing, Greta oto
On Friday we headed north to Warwickshire to attend the Butterfly Conservation national AGM. As we were staying overnight, we took the opportunity to visit the Stratford Butterfly Farm. This was an interesting exhibit and Sue enjoyed the quail, parakeets and tropical butterflies. My highlight was seeing Glasswings flying around one of the greenhouses.
