Early Iris

No further reports of early iris, despite vigilance (e.g. Tony Baines searched the main Alice Holt territories on Tues unsuccessfully). It seems that one or two males jumped the gun rather at Bookham.

The National Trust is proud that one of its places produced what seems to be the earliest Purple Emperor since 1893. And it's proud of the levels of butterfly interest and entomological recording at Bookham.

The start of the main emergence may be some days off...
