The last red admiral in Denmark was spotted on November 12th on a clear,
sunny day. It was a very poor year for red admirals despite the huge
immigration in June, probably due to the extremely cold summer weather.
Now we can only wait for next year's immigration.
But how is the situation elsewhere in Europe and the US? Are the
butterflies still flying in winter time. Do they reproduce during winter
or are they inactive?
