Red Admiral nectar: tree sap

I was strolling through Candie Gardens in Guernsey a couple of weeks ago and I spotted a little butterfly frenzy. At least 10 Red Admirals were hovering around the bark of a tree. I didn’t realise at the time that they were attracted by the sap of the old tree.

      Thank you. I’m back now but I was on holiday there a couple of weeks ago. It was lovely to be back in Guernsey and I was so pleased that it hadn’t changed very much since my last visit.
