Dutch butterfly spring news


This video is called Astonishing European Butterflies and Moths.

The Dutch Butterfly Foundation reports that never before so many butterflies have been seen so early in March as during the mild spring weather of last weekend.

About 99% were butterflies which had wintered as adults, like small tortoiseshell and brimstone.

However, there were also already some which had wintered as pupae: large white, small white, green-veined white, holly blue and speckled wood.

Various large tortoiseshell individuals were seen as well. This butterfly species was considered to be extinct in the Netherlands. One should hope it is coming back.
