The Red Admiral Butterfly is a common and widespread butterfly throughout the British Isles and most of Europe. Most only survive as adults for one year but some may spend the winter in hibernation, reappearing the following spring. Late summer numbers in Britain are often boosted by migrants from Europe. Larva feeds on Stinging Nettle.
