Meadow Brown

Butterfly

Meadow Brown Butterflies are a dull brown colour with bright orange-brown patches on their fore and hind wings and a distinctive dark eyspot on their forewings.

They are common almost everywhere in the UK and are found in fields, roadsides and woodland margins.

Meadow Browns feed on nectar from thistles and knapweed flowers.
