Adonis Blues still going!

I was very pleased to find this freshly emerged male Adonis Blue last Saturday 14 November - it seemed like a very late date to me.In fact I found three different males. Looking on the Faune Aquitaine website this is the latest they have been recorded in their datasets of Aquitaine. It was warm afternoon around 18°C with hazy sun. There were other species flying notably Clouded Yellows and Long-tailed Blues but also a few Berger's Clouded Yellows and Small Coppers amongst several others. With temperatures set to drop and the forecast more unsettled this may be the last week with a variety of species flying until next March - but I'll keep on looking for the last Adonis Blues of the year!
PS. Still one or two flying yesterday 21st November - a new record late date on the Faune-Aquitaine database. I can't believe there will still be any flying in December but who knows...
