This butterfly can turn up almost anywhere, from city centres to mountain tops and as such, it is one of our most successful butterflies. It is most-often seen, however, where nettles grow in abundance hence the urticae part of its name.
It seems to have been a decent year for butterflies with my garden in Warrington, England being a ‘restaurant’ for five different species.
