Spring on the wing
A sure sign that spring is on its way is the emergence of overwintering butterflies in search of early pollen. Surrey is a great county for butterflies, with over 40 species recorded.
Some butterfly species over-winter as eggs, caterpillars or chrysalises during the cold winter months, whilst others hibernate until the following spring.
