Late Red Admiral

We have a number of different colour forms of Buddleia davidii in the garden, pruned differently to give a wider spread of flowering time. And we have a different one too, pale orange blending into pale mauve. It attracted insects very well in August. I cut off the spent flowers and in October and now into November it's had a second crop and is still attracting insects including night flying moths. Tony saw a Red Admiral nectaring on it yesterday Nov. 13th. Only hindsight will tell us the last date!

Leon is still seeing Clouded Yellows on the cliff at Seaton. Sunshine on November 13th gave him 8 individuals plus the same pale Helice form of the female that he'd seen last Friday.
