Small Tortoiseshell Aglais urticae 

Suddenly this species has become scarce, in a very short time, though last season showed some recovery, there are very few to be seen this summer. The butterflies emerge in a little over two weeks, dependent on temperature.

The butterflies can be kept in a cage for a few days, with plenty of flowers for nectar, and then released to help the wild populations.
