The Ringlet Butterfly is one of our common brown butterflies, found throughout the uk, in woodland glades, meadows and rough grassland. Its rings- a white dot, surrounded by brown and with an encircling yellow ring, plus its uniform brown uppersides and pale wing fringes are what distinguish it from Meadow Browns. Being a dark colour, the Ringlet warms up easily and is therefore more likely than most butterflies to be flying in cloudy weather. The caterpillars feed on coarse grasses, such as Cock’s Comb, and the adults favour wild Privet and Bramble, but here are happy feeding on Knapweed (‘Hardheads’), and in competition with Honey bees! Conditions: Dry and mostly sunny day. Temperature: Max 21-Min 11c.
