Details for Sighting Record 1114073

Date of Observation: April 09, 2017
Submitted By: Mr Bill E-B
Species: Nymphalis vaualbum Compton Tortoiseshell
Specimen Type: Photograph
Observation Notes: Finally the warmer weather is here, but still patches of snow lie around. I was quite taken by surprise that I even saw anything as temperatures are close to 0 C at night. I do think this one was just emerging today though as it looked like it was drying its wings. I truly think this is a very hardy species.
Status: Resident
