Last autumn I had to remove a people counter from the access track to St Ninian's Isle beach as it had stopped working. Stuck behind one of the units was a chrysalis. "Cool" I thought I'll take it home to show Beren".
It's been stuck to a stick on a windowsill for months ever since.
I never thought it would hatch, but today it has!
We thought it might be a large white going by the chrysalis, and it looks like it is.
Happy Birthday Bugsy, we'll release you when Clare and Beren have seen you.
