Wednesday 19 April

Lancing Ring & Steep Down in sunshine, but still a cool breeze. 8 species of butterfly seen with no great numbers of any one. 8 Green-veined White - it was seemingly the only species increasing in numbers. One million Cowslips on the north scarp of Steep Down was impressive. Would someone please alert the Duke of Burgundy?!  (Lindsay Morris)

Very few butterflies around in urban Hove recently. The Holly Blues are not around yet in our garden (or anywhere locally) so we were more excited than usual to see a Small White come back several times this afternoon to sunbathe by the cowslips in our lawn. (John & Val Heys)

A Small Copper flying around a grassy patch in my West St Leonards garden this afternoon. Another garden first for me this year.  (Janet Wilkes)
