One of the scarcer Butterflies on the golf course and don't see them every year. Often seen flying high in trees such as its foodplant, Elm but occasionaly comes to the ground like this one did trying to get some moisture from a recently watered tee.
MARBLED WHITE POSING FOR PHOTO
A very distinctive Black & White Butterfly that usually favours the Carthagena course with its thinner rough areas but has been seen several times in the last few years on the John o Gaunt course
A Butterfly I had always wanted to see and one that finally graced the golf club with its presence on 17th July 2019. Often seen flying high in the tree tops but occasionally its is seen at lower levels like this one when it settled on an irrigation control box. It is known for feeding on animal dung. What an amazing Butterfly.
Another one of our scarcer Butterflies, usually seen on the Carthagena course but has been seen on both sides. Associated with Oak Trees as that is what the larvae feed on. More sightings have occured in the last 3-4 years but not usually many records each year.
GREEN VEINED WHITE
Quite possibly one of the first Butterflies you might say in the early Spring. Very obvious all Yellow Butterfly
