Brimstones in Rewell Wood

Coltsfoot, Wood Violet and Lesser Celandines
On March 23rd I had 14 sightings of male Brimstones during a walk round the rides in Rewell Wood. A couple nectared on dandelions and primroses. Coltsfoot, Lesser Celandines and Wood Violets were also in flower. A Hebrew Character was the first visitor to my moth trap this year.

Primroses, Primula vulgaris

Lesser Celandine, Ranunculus ficaria

Brimstone, Gonepteryx rhamni on Primrose

Hebrew Character, Xestia c-nigrum
