Flutter by butterflies…

We had a lovely time at Calthorpe Haven releasing the Painted Lady butterflies that hatched yesterday.  We released them one by one and the first two were very keen to flutter off into the distance. We decided they wanted some sweet nectar and wanted to explore their new home for it. The final couple of butterflies were a little timid so Miss Samra had to encourage them to be brave! She placed them on some flowers we chose and we decided they might be sunbathing because they were cold blooded and didn’t have enough energy to fly away yet. Maybe the butterflies will lay some eggs… Where would be the best place for them to do this and why..?
