On Saturday 30 May there were lots of butterflies around, which is very unusual. They were even flying around on the beach, and my son said they were also out at sea.

They are still around this morning.

Has anyone else seen them?

Everybody that lives here or has been on holiday. There are at least a hundred on Cocosol alone. I think all of those belong to the president. :D

They are painted ladies, which have the latin name Vanessa cardui.

They have come from the Atlas mountains in Morroco and there have been sightings in the UK that suggest that they are part of the biggest migration since the 1960's.

Some people think I am a know all. :roll:

Thanks, they're the ones.

They are keeping our black cat active as she chases them. :lol:
