It is a good time of the year to see a range of butterflies and day flying moths around the gardens. A good population of Monarch Butterflies can be seen along the Main Walk and other species include the Crimson-Speckled Moth, Andalusian Blue, Small White and the Speckled Wood butterfly; all depicted in the video.
