Black-veined White Butterflies
Pete Catterall (July)
We were treated to a visit from what seemed like hundreds of these large and beautiful butterflies whilst eating our lunch on a sunny riverbank during this years Alpine Classics Kayak Week.
No longer found in the UK these butterflies are common in Europe. Since they became extinct in the UK (around 1920), there have been many attempts to reintroduce them to Britain but all have failed.
