A colleague at work told me that he had seen either a Small White or Large
White butterfly feeding around Fresh cut flowers at Tesco's Food store in
Lowestoft Suffolk on January 26th.

Do Whites overwinter as adults? ie hibernate like Peacocks and Small
Tortoiseshells. Im sure thy don't.

It was very warm here on the east coast today and I expected to see a
butterfly of the latter two species, I found three Hibernating Peacocks at
North Cove SWT Reserve near Beccles but they were still fast
